JMM 2021 Minicourse: Modeling-based Differential Equations

6-9 January 2021. Friday, 8 January 2021, 8:00 AM - 10:50 AM and Saturday, 9 January 2021, 1:00 PM - 5:50PM. See JMM Program

Call for Presenters: Please consider joining us and register at JMM 2021 site.


This minicourse is designed to introduce faculty to a modeling-based approach to differential equations and to support faculty in finding, using, and adapting materials for modeling activities in their courses. Participating faculty will experience hands-on classroom activities designed to support this pedagogical approach and engage in discussion about the benefits and challenges of using this approach with leaders who are experienced in this area.

Leaders will share their own experiences in designing and using modeling-focused classroom activities and share resources for finding and adapting modeling scenarios. Participants will also be encouraged to share experiences they have had using modeling. Finally, participants will be given time to explore existing resources and adapt them for their course in small groups with guidance from experienced faculty leaders, helping participants gain confidence in incorporating modeling effectively in the classroom.
