  2. 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,...

  3. 1-160-S-HeartDeathRate

    20 Sep 2021 | | Contributor(s):: Arati Nanda Pati

    In this modeling scenario, we offer students simulation experience from a given data set which represents the heart death rate during the period 2000 - 2010 using several approaches to include exponential decay, difference equation, differential equation, and parameter estimation using EXCEL. We...

  4. 10-100-S-InsectOutbreaks

    17 Aug 2021 | | Contributor(s):: Jacob Paul Duncan

    The mountain pine beetle (MPB, Dendroctonus ponderosae), a tree-killing bark beetle, has historically been part of the normal disturbance regime in lodgepole pine (Pinus contorta) forests. In recent years, warmer weather has allowed MPB populations to achieve synchronous emergence and successful...

  8. 10-001-S-TilingHallway

    12 Sep 2019 | | Contributor(s):: Rob Krueger, Eric Stachura

    Students will investigate difference equations through the context of tiling hallways. Students will observe patterns in the tiling which will lead to a difference equation model. Solutions will be calculated by iteration.  Then students will be introduced to the concept of the shift...

  9. 1-001d-S-HotelPopulationDecay

    03 Jul 2019 | | Contributor(s):: Dina Yagodich

    We offer students an opportunity to create a simulation model a hotel population with clients checking in and checking out according to two different disciplines as well as a number of different starting populations in the hotel.

  10. 1-001c-S-PopulationDecayThenSome

    18 Jun 2019 | | Contributor(s):: Dina Yagodich

    This is an adaption of Modeling Scenario 1-001-S-MandMDeathAndImmigration  in which death and immigration of m&m's is replaced by check outs and arrivals in a hotel and makes specific use of MatLab coding.

  11. 1-062-S-BacterialGrowth

    15 Sep 2018 | | Contributor(s):: Arati Nanda Pati

    We offer students a simulation experience or data from a simulation and ask them to model the simulation using several approaches andusing EXCEL spreadsheet. In this particular modeling scenario, we know the exact solution and want to see how various models predict our expectations. We have used...

  12. 1-108-S-PoissonProcess

    27 Aug 2018 | | Contributor(s):: Mehdi Hakim-Hashemi

    In this project students learn to derive the probability density function (pdf) of the Poisson distribution and the cumulative distribution (cdf) of the waiting time. They will use them to solve problems in stochastic processes.

  13. 9-001-Text-S-SkinBurnModelNumericalMethods

    18 Aug 2018 | | Contributor(s):: Suruchi Singh

    The heat equation is an important partial differential equation (PDE) which describes the distribution of heat in a given region over time. Here we learn to solve a heat equation numerically. It is difficult to study the behavior of temperature in problems with interfaces analytically so...

  14. 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.

    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...
