    18 Sep 2018 | | Contributor(s):: Eric Stachura, Rob Krueger

    In this scenario, students will begin by carefully reading through the problem statement and uncovering which information is useful. Students will derive a system of differential equations which describe the flight path of a drone delivering a package. Techniques used to derive the analytical...

    13 Apr 2017 | | Contributor(s):: Richard Spindler

    You just received a new long-range helicopter drone for your birthday! After a little practice, you try a long-range test of it by having it carry a small package to your home. A friend volunteers to take it 5 miles east of your home with the goal of flying directly back to your home. So you...
