Stella Modeling: Take-Aways & Reflection


Answer these questions based on the Stella Modeling Activity. This assignment will be easier if you have your
modeling packet with you!

1. What variable(s) seemed to produce the largest impact on how the disease spread? Support your answer with
evidence from the model.

2. If you were sick with the flu, how could you prevent passing it on to other people? Support your answer with
evidence from the modeling activity.

3. One flaw in this model is that every person in the susceptible population had an equal chance of catching the
infectious disease. In reality, this would not be the case. What variables might affect a person’s susceptibility -
meaning, how likely they would catch the disease?

4. Describe one other finding which you found interesting or surprising during this modeling exercise. Be specific.
