The m&m's went great again, as usual! Such a fantastic way to start the semester. I have switched to an open source book with less theory in it, so I am hoping to get even more modeling in this semester.And I have had students already ask great questions like "what does a differential equation look like with a real upper limit to population?"That's what modeling does - it makes them actually think outside of just the steps to solving questions to get the answers in the back of the book!
