The Disease Detectives page on the national website (https://www.soinc.org/disease_detectives_c) has handouts and powerpoints with many other concepts that I've seen frequently tested at tournaments. I recommend studying those carefully.all I know so far is that you have to find out what disease and how it spreads. is that it?
There is much more to it such as calculating odds ratios or relative risk. You also need to know many terms used in epidemiology and the history of how diseases were started and cured. I can't tell you everything as Disease Detectives is a very logic based event but these are some of the other basic things to know. Math is a key concept in it that helps calculate the effectivity of diseases and cured and what not. Have fun studying!all I know so far is that you have to find out what disease and how it spreads. is that it?
It isn't very difficult. It just has many aspects to it. I suggest you start studying the basics such as modes of transmission and calculations of measures of risk, but from this being my third year I have began to notice that it is a very logical based event that also needs studying and a good cheat sheet. If you are a good problem solver and aren't afraid of using math and writing evidence backing your statement and such then this is for you.is this event very hard, I've never done it before but am very interested.
The Statistic Overview on soinc.org (https://www.soinc.org/sites/default/fil ... CS_C_0.pdf) provides a great overview on the common stats tests you need to know, and based off that I don't think you'd need to go that in-depth. Correct me if I'm wrongDo we need to know the different sub-types of statistical tests (such as one-tail and two-tail Z-Tests)? I have Chi-square and One Sample Z-Test down, but the list seems endless.
