MAA Workshop

Making it Happen: Modeling in Your Differential Equations Course 

Room 324, BCC, Thursday, 17 January 2019, 9:00 AM - 10:20 AM

Organizer: 
Brian Winkel, SIMIODE 

Presenters: 
Audrey Malagon, West Virginia University 
Rachel Rossetti, Agnes Scott College 
Brian Winkel, SIMIODE 
Dina Yagodich, Frederick University

This is FREE Drop-In Workshop

Workshop participants experience modeling with differential equations in a way they can bring into their own classroom.  Modeling activities are used so teachers can experience, as students, what it is like to learn and teach in a modeling-based differential equations environment. We do this with engaging examples, situations in which modeling gives rise to mathematics.  Modeling Scenarios from the SIMIODE - Systemic Initiative for Modeling Investigations and Opportunities with Differential Equations community at www.simiode.org will serve as example opportunities.

Participants generate and collect data through experiments, build a mathematical model, estimate parameters, validate the model, and create the need for learning about differential equations as a direct result of the modeling activity. Examples will involve collecting data and using data from sources, modeling, and parameter estimation. The demonstrations  of the effective use of modeling to motivate the study of differential equations will be suitable for different school settings, high schools, two-year colleges, and four-year institutions. Workshop participants will leave with a large collection of materials they can use to offer a modeling-based approach in their own differential equations courses.

When: Thursday 17 January, 2019, 9:00 am - 10:20 pm EST
