  1. 1-036-S-NeutralBuoyancy

    03 Jun 2016 | | Contributor(s):: John Thomas Sieben

    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...

  2. 1-032-S-WordPropagation

    07 Apr 2016 | | Contributor(s):: Rachelle DeCoste, Rachel Bayless

    This activity is a gentle introduction to modeling via differential equations. The students will model the rate at which the word jumbo has propagated through English language texts over time.

  3. 7-005-S-Text-LaplaceTransformOverview

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

    The Laplace Transform is a mathematical construct that has proven very useful in both solving and understanding differential equations. We introduce it and show its power here. This is done in a Mathematica notebook with pdf provided.
