2015-McIlwain, Hope - Tumor growth/Gompertz model article in PRIMUS
14 Jul 2015 | | Contributor(s):: Hope McIlwain
Abstract of the article: The use of modeling projects serves to integrate, reinforce, and extend student knowledge. Here we present two projects related to tumor growth appropriate for a first course in differential equations. They illustrate the use of problem-based learning to...
