This is the first SIAM Conference on Applied Mathematics Education held in Philadelphia PA USA, 28 September - 2 October 2016.
We offer a presentation entitled, "SIMIODE - A Community for Teaching Modeling First Differential Equations."
Abstract: SIMIODE - Systemic Initiative for Modeling Investigations and Opportunities with Differential Equations (www.simiode.org) is a community of teachers and learners who believe that modeling can motivate and engage students in learning differential equations. We present the SIMIODE community, offer rich examples of this approach using data, videos, and realistic scenarios, and discuss how faculty can contribute their own materials for a peer-reviewed online publication. Examples will come from engineering, physics, chemistry, and life sciences.
These are the slides for a talk given by Brian Winkel, SIMIODE Director, at the 2016 SIAM Conference on Applied Mathematics Education, held in Philadelphia PA USA, 29 September - 2 October 2016.
An overview of SIMIODE, its functionality, its features, and its resources is given.
