Enrichment, Experiences, and Examples with Modeling in Differential Equations Courses - Contributed Paper Session
There is a Contributed Paper Session, Enrichment, Experiences, and Examples with Modeling in Differential Equations Courses, at MathFest 2017, Chicago IL, 26-29 July 2017. The session if organized by Ellen Swanson, Centre College, Danville KY; Chris McCarthy, Borough of Manhattan Community College, CUNY, New York NY; and Brian Winkel, SIMIODE, Cornwall NY. The session is scheduled for 27 July 2017, Thursday afternoon and see the Call for Papers to contribute your ideas at this site.
This session features talks in which colleagues who are using mathematical modeling to motivate the learning of differential equations share their experiences and mathematical offerings. Hopefully, others will be able to incorporate or build on these activities. We are interested in talks which feature real data (either collected or taken from the literature, or found online) and a full modeling process for students, i.e. stating assumptions, making identifications, creating a differential equation model, developing solution strategies, performing parameter estimations, rendering model validation, and iterating this process. Some evidence of the success of individual approaches should be offered.
There is strong interest in this area given recent meeting sessions and minicourses offered by the CODEE and SIMIODE communities and our session will recognize the work of many faculty who are engaged in this vital approach to mathematics through their presentations and possible publication. Presenters will be invited to submit their talk, in an enhanced and richer version, for consideration in a special issue of the journal, PRIMUS – Problems, Resources, and Issues in Mathematics Undergraduate Studies. The first co-organizer is the Founding Editor of PRIMUS.
