The m&m's went great again, as usual! Such a fantastic way to start the semester. I have switched to an open source book with less theory in it, so I am hoping to get even more modeling in this semester. And I have had students already ask great questions like "what does a differential equation look like with a real upper limit to population?"That's what modeling does - it makes them actually think outside of just the steps to solving questions to get the answers in the back of the book!" … › more

This thought comes from a student in an entrepreneurship class in an Eastern United States liberal arts college. "It is clear to see where each number is coming from and why it is being used. I would have the math department teach the basics, but also incorporate applic … › more

Today was Poster day at BMCC. Meaning all the students doing honors projects and research projects had their posters on display. It is my favorite day of the year (academically) and I am always so proud of our students. One project involved a track with an accelerometer … › more

I must say a hearty AMEN! The biggest problem I saw in my time as a student as well as an instructor was that there needs to be more of an application approach to differential equations. Recalling my time as an undergraduate I took nearly two … › more

In my class evaluations, students were asked "What class assignment or activity did you find to be the most useful?" One student answered, "Believe it or not, the M&M activity on the first day of class really stood out to me. It helped show the … › more

Followers of Systematic Initiative for Modeling Investigations and Opportunities with Differential Equations (SIMIODE) will be familiar with the use of M&M candies to model a population with deaths and immigration. We discuss its successful use in a differential equations course and at a Math Circle meeting … › more
