Virus on a Plantation

In a large plantation, a plant got infected, mostly likely through some sort of insect or bug. The virus infecting the plant acts fast: in just one day not only does it spread to all closest plants, it also kills its original host plant. In this investigation students explore the spread of a virus on a plantation in different scenarios: at first the spread on plants planted in a row, then on plants planted in a rectangular grid, and finally on a hexagonal grid.
