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...

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...

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...

We offer three mixing problems, of increasing order of difficulty, in which salt is coming into a tank of water and upon instantaneous mixing is leaving the tank.

We apply Torricelli's Law to the task of building a water clock in which the height of the water in a container falls at a constant rate when the container has a hole in the bottom to let the water flow out. First, we review the principles and derivation of the applicable physics in...

We offer students the opportunity to develop several strategies for creating a population model using some simple probabilistic assumptions. These assumptions lead to a system of differential equations for the probability that a system is in state (or population size) n at time t. We go further...

Things float or they don’t.  Well, it’s not quite that simple. In this exercise we lead students through applications of several laws of physics to develop and solve differential equations that will predict where in a water column a weight with an attached lift bag will become...

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...

Students build three different models for levels of salt in a tank of water and at each stage the level of complexity increases with attention to nuances necessary for success.
