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 talk discusses how a structural engineering construct, Tuned Mass Dampers, is introduced in a differential equations component of an Engineering Mathematics course with rich mathematical context and illustrations of real applications used to mitigate vibrations in structures.
