Students are introduced to the concept of a bifurcation in a first-order ordinary differential equation through a modeling scenario involving atmospheric carbon dioxide. Carbon dioxide is taken as a parameter and temperature is a function of time.

This project has three parts, the first part to be done at home, the last two parts in class. In the home part we recall how to solve second order, linear, differential equations with constant coefficients and simple source functions. In the first in-class part we analyze the solutions found at...
