Abstract

Workshop at Spring 2016 MAA-NJ Meeting, to be held at William Patterson University in Wayne, NJ on  16 April 2016.

We engage participants in modeling activities to collect data which can then be modeled to motivate introduction and learning
of differential equations. These have successfully served hundreds of faculty (and their students) in a first-day activity for a
differential equations or modeling course. We will share other modeling opportunities and discuss how SIMIODE - Systemic Initiative for
Modeling Investigations and Opportunities with Differential Equations (www.simiode.org), a free community of teachers and students,
supports a modeling first approach to teaching and learning differential equations. Come join our merry band!
