How I Use It
I am always looking to increase my students' ability to think critically and problem solve. This is a great way for students to improve their thinking while problem solving. Each level can be completed in a short length of time and students can come back into the application to continue to solve the outbreak.
My Take
Increasing critical thinking and problem solving is part of the skills needed for our students to be successful in school and in their lives. The analysis of data is one of the science practices of the NGSS and common to science classes. If students are having fun they will continue to practice those skills.
