Daily Study Group: Building and Applying Epidemic Models
About This Study Group
Learn about different epidemic model types and how to create and present these models using the Wolfram Language in this two-week Study Group.

A Wolfram certified instructor guides each session by sharing short lessons, polling the group to review key concepts, introducing practice problems and answering questions. A certificate of program completion will be awarded to participants who attend online sessions and pass quizzes.

Study Group sessions run daily, Monday through Friday. This Study Group begins Monday, May 10, 2021.
