  1. 6-065-S-InternetPlatformUsers

    30 Oct 2018 | | Contributor(s):: Victoria Rayskin

    A model estimating the volume of users interacting through a two-sided Internet platform (allowing interaction of two types of users) will teach students how to analyze a 2-dimensional dynamical system. The model will illustrate how the question of existence of closed orbits can be investigated....

  2. 1-089-S-SpreadOfDisease

    15 Aug 2018 | | Contributor(s):: Shinemin Lin

    In this project we use the algebra based concept “difference quotient” to solve differential equations models with the help of Excel.

  3. 1-054-S-GrowthInFarmland

    14 Aug 2018 | | Contributor(s):: Richard Spindler

    An enriching project developing a model from data with missing temporal information is described. Students fit functions to the data that leads to the creation of a differential equations model, which they then are required to analyze in multiple ways. Different fits, modeling approaches, and...

  5. 7-008-S-MachineReplacement

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

      Students build an differential equation model using a convolution for machine replacement strategies for two different machine failure models: (1) exponentially distributed failure (student exercise) and (2) fixed time replacement. We discuss all the necessary probability notions which...
