I can't seem to open this file and I really want to read it.
Here is the link, I have no issues opening other PDF files.

I really did not want to start another thread about the flu, but the title to this NSA document looks so strange. I just want to read it.

Can anyone help?
Making Money and Spreading the Flu

I can't make a comment until I read it. I just hope it's worth reading.

This is the first part of the document.

Your link sends me to an NSA error notice page.

Also, just the title of this thread seems blatantly ominous eh? Maybe the document really isn't meant for your eyes..

Looks like "making money" and "spreading the flu" are separate topics for a high school algebra lesson

Thanks but still the error mess.

If you want, when you go to the site look in the search engine and type the word flu.

It should be the first file to pop up.

It's an exercise on exponential growth...some deal with a flu others deal with interest compounding growth.

Modeling the Spread of Flu at a High School
1. Mike is sick with the flu but he still comes to school on Monday. He arrives at 8am and by 9am (Hour 1), Mike has already infected two of his friends, Jose and Lisa. By 10am (Hour 2), Jose has infected two of his friends, Bill and Ted, and Lisa has infected two of her friends, Jenny and Kiara.
(a) If each person with the flu infects two other people in each hour, how many students are infected by 3pm (Hour 7)? Complete the Table and graph the points in the grid below

Not that the PDF has anything important in is, but if you're still getting an error it must be your computer. This is the full link:

Thank you that worked.
It's a math lesson but with such a strange name.

Nothing in it really, unless you look at the growth rate chart they give for the flu.
Kinda neat.
