  7. 1-023-S-RumorSpread

    04 Jun 2015 | | Contributor(s):: Brian Winkel

    We use a newspaper report on the spread of a rumor based on shares of articles on the Internet over a 5 day period to demonstrate the value of modeling with the logistic differential equation. The data shows and the intrinsic growth rates confirm that the false rumor spread faster than true rumor.

  8. 1-019-S-RocksInTheHead

    04 Jun 2015 | | Contributor(s):: Brian Winkel

     We describe an experiment and offer data from a previously conducted experiment on the perception of the individual mass of a collection of rocks in comparison to a 100 g brass mass. We lead students to use the logistic differential equation as a reasonable model, estimate the parameters,...

  9. 1-018-S-LogisticPopGrowth

    04 Jun 2015 | | Contributor(s):: Brian Winkel

    We offer artificial (toy) and historical data on limited growth population situations in the study of protozoa and lead students through several approaches to estimating parameters and determining the validity of the logistic  model in these situations. 

  10. 1-017-S-DiseaseSpread

    04 Jun 2015 | | Contributor(s):: Brian Winkel

    We offer a physical situation, using a grid and M and M candies, to simulate the spread of disease. Students conduct the simulation and collect the data which is used to estimate parameters (in several ways)  in a differential equation model for the spread of the disease. Students ...
