The workshop will be led by Rosemary Farley, Manhattan College, Jon Paynter, US Military Academy, Therese Shelton, Southwestern University, Patrice Tiffany, Manhattan College, and Brian Winkel, Director SIMIODE. Below are the available details. Complete details and registration information will are in the fall copy of MAA's FOCUS magazine and at the JMM meeting site Consider joining us and put the dates in your calendar.
Sessions and locations are: Part A, Thursday, 1:00–3:00 pm, and Part B, Saturday, 1:00–3:00 pm.
Title: Teaching Modeling-First Differential Equations – Technology and Complete End Game Efforts
Abstract: We offer experiences for building and teaching mathematical models with differential equations: epidemic model of school boy infirmary, Torricelli’s Law, fishery management effort, post-operative retinal fluid dissipation, fair stadium design, sublimation of carbon dioxide, chemical kinetics, ant tunnel building, spread of oil slick, pursuit efforts, pharmacokinetics of LSD and paracetamol, shuttlecock fall, and lake algae. We discuss the role technology plays in the end game modeling efforts of parameter estimation, non-linear regression analysis, and model comparison. Through active hands-on small group work faculty experience using modeling to teach differential equations from soup to nuts. We do this in the context of SIMIODE - Systemic Initiative for Modeling Investigations and Opportunities with Differential Equations, an online (www.simiode.org) community of differential equations teachers who use modeling and technology.
