  1. 1-005C-S-OilSlick

    17 Jan 2022 | | Contributor(s):: Jennie D'Ambroise

    We describe a modeling activity for Calculus I students in which modeling with difference and differential equations is appropriate. This model enlightens students as to how derivatives are used in applications as well as a brief introductory encounter with parameter estimation for a linear,...

  2. 1-027-S-StochasticProcesses

    04 Jun 2015 | | Contributor(s):: Brian Winkel

    We build the infinite set of first order differential equations for modeling a stochastic process, the so-called birth and death equations. We will only need to use integrating factor solution strategy or DSolve in Mathematica for success.  We work to build our model of random events which...

  3. 1-007-S-AntTunnelBuilding

    31 May 2015 | | Contributor(s):: Brian Winkel

    We pose the prospect of modeling just how long an ant takes to build a tunnel. With a bit of guidance students produce a model for the time it takes to build a tunnel of length x into the side of a damp sandy hill. SPANISH LANGUAGE VERSION  We have placed in Supporting Docs both...

  4. 1-003-S-CollegeSavings

    12 May 2015 | | Contributor(s):: Brian Winkel

    We present a modeling opportunity for students in which they have to plan and model for saving for a child's complete college education.
