We describe the frequency response to a second order differential equation with a driving function as the maximum steady state solution amplitude and perform some analyses in this regard.

We present two exercises from a differential equations text in which we ask students to model (1) falling object experiencing terminal velocity and (2) bobbing block of wood in liquid. We model the motion using Newton's Second Law of Motion and Archimedes' Principle.

Students will analyze temperature variations in a room using Newton's Cooling Law. In this model, the only influence on the indoor temperature is the (oscillating) outdoor temperature (as we assume the heating/cooling system is broken). The main goal of this project is for students to set up...

We consider a column of water with three holes or spigots through which water can exit and ask students to model the height of the column of water over time.

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...

We consider modeling the attempt of an air conditioner to cool a room to a ``constant'' temperature.

9. 22 Nov 2016 | | Contributor(s):: Brian Winkel

We examine many different physical situations to determine the time it takes a fixed volume of water to flow out of different shape containers through the same size exit hole at the bottom of the container.

We model the cooling of a baked potato and compare it to student-collected data.

Preparing for four years of college for a friend of the family's newborn is the task. Making assumptions about costs, timing, interest rates, and fiscal capabilities are the order of the day.

We offer students a chance to model a one compartment salt mixing model.

13. 25 Jun 2016 | | Contributor(s):: Troy Henderson

We offer raw data collected from a webcam and a thermometer for evaluating the strength of steeping tea.  We ask students to build a mathematical model using the data to predict how long the tea should steep before essentially reaching saturation.

14. 04 Jun 2015 | | Contributor(s):: Brian Winkel

We offer a problem of determining the necessary drug administration in order to keep a dogsedated with specific information on half-life for an exponentially decaying presence of the drug in the body.

15. 03 Jun 2015 | | Contributor(s):: Brian Winkel

We present several situations in which differential equation models serve to aid in sleuthing and general investigations. One involves initial speed given information about constant deceleration and distance to stop in traffic incident; one involves modeling a steel ball launched vertically and...

We pose the prospect of modeling just how long an ant takes to build a tunnel. With a bit of guidance students produce a model for the time it takes to build a tunnel of length x into the side of a damp sandy hill. SPANISH LANGUAGE VERSION  We have placed in Supporting Docs both...
