Interactive Models

Exploring Patterns of Human Geography and COVID-19

Overview

Using interactive maps of COVID-19 cases and population density, students will describe how the spread of COVID-19 is affected by population density and explain why patterns in the spread of COVID-19 are happening over time.

This interactive model is one of a two-part sequence of learning experiences related to COVID-19. To maximize optimal learning outcomes, it is suggested to complete the series in the following order:

  1. Exploring Patterns of Human Geography and COVID-19 Interactive Model (current page)
  2. Stability and Change of COVID-19 and Nitrogen Dioxide Interactive Model
