This module takes students through real life scenarios to examine resonance and its destructive power using differential equation models. What is resonance? How does it happen? Why is it important? Three cases are presented: shattering a wine glass, collapse of a suspension bridge, and crash of...

As captain of a barge, you need to determine how fast to transportyour barge up river against the current in order to minimize the expended energy.Since expended energy is proportional to the force, and since the force is proportional to the speed, traveling too fast is inefficient. However, if...

We are given data on the time and position of a whiffle ball as it falls to the ground. We attempt to model the falling ball and we confront the different resistance terms and models. Finally, we introduce a new way of comparing models, the Akaike Information Criterion, and apply it to our models.
