  1. 1-125-S-DiceyPopulations

    04 Mar 2019 | | Contributor(s):: Brian Winkel

    We offer students an opportunity to generate unique data for their team on a death and immigration model using 12 and 20 sided dice and then pass on the data to another student team for analysis with a model they built. The key is to recover the parameters and try to explain how the simulation...

    John  Thoo, Department of Mathematics and Statistics, Yuba College, offers detailed narrative review on his use of this material

  8. 1-001-S-MandMDeathAndImmigration

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

    We describe a classroom activity in which students use M&M candies to simulate death and immigration. Students build a mathematical model, collect data, estimate parameters, and compare their model prediction with their actual data. There is a video of one run of the main simulation in this...
