Why is it important to take an antibiotic as described? Why must you take all the pills and not stop, even if you feel better? In this activity, students model the development of antibiotic resistance in a sample of harmful bacteria. This activity addresses misconceptions about antibiotic resistant bacteria and their evolution in a hands-on way. Key skills developed include making and using graphs and tables, evaluating models, and number concepts.
