Linear approximations are often used to simplify nonlinear ordinary differential equations (ODEs) for ease in analysis. The resulting linear approximation produces an ODE where closed form solutions may be obtained. A simple model using Torricelli's Law will compare the exact solution to...

1084SGoingViral
31 Aug 2019   Contributor(s):: Bill Skerbitz
Students employ randomization in order to create a simulation of the spread of a viral disease in a population (the classroom). Students then use qualitative analysis of the expected behavior of the virus to devise a logistic differential equation. Finally, students solve the...
