Students are prompted to build systems of nonlinear differential equations to model pursuit-evader activities in which a pursuer attempts to follow, perhaps track down and come close to, an evader without knowledge of the evader's intentions, just knowledge of the evader's path history. The concept of aiming ahead of the evader's motion, in contrast to aiming directly at the position, is suggested to students.
