Card game for host-parasite coevolution in a metapopulation.

See Amanda Gibson's description of the game, educational video, and resources here. (Many thanks to Dr. Kirstin Milks of Bloomington High School South for letting us demo the game in her class, and for her feed back on how to streamline it for 1-hour class periods and HS use.)

SIR model. This is an easy-to-edit SIR model with a simple class exercise.
Evolution of virulence. Simulation lab showing the transmission/virulence tradeoff, optimal virulence, and the effects of tweaking natural host death rate and the minimum virulence for transmission.
Size/number tradeoff. Life-history simulation showing the size/number trade-off, the ESS solution, and the first and second derivative tests.
Heritability lab. Simulation exercise showing the effect of changing both heritability and the selection differential on the response to selection. It also shows how the selection differential is related to the selection gradient.
