04 Mar 2017 | Presentations | Contributor(s): Tiernan R Fogarty
This talk was presented at the AMS Special Session on the Modeling First Approach to Teaching Differential Equations at the Joint Mathematics Meetings, 7 January 2017, Atlanta GA USA.This presentation illustrates a successful empirical modeling activity for several beam configurations...
22 Nov 2016 | Modeling Scenarios | Contributor(s): Gregg Waterman, Tiernan R Fogarty
This scenario is designed to lead students to discover a differential equation that models the vertical deflection of a horizontal beam under different boundary conditions. Vertical deflection occurs as a result of the weight of the beam alone, with no compressive force at the ends or distributed...
