Application and modeling are beyond manipulation and solving in a differential equations course. We use modeling scenarios to drive the learning and to the mathematical concepts and techniques in a collegial learning community called SIMIODE - Systemic Initiative for Modeling Investigations and Opportunities with Differential Equations found at www.simiode.org. We give examples of modeling scenarios with data to motivate the study of differential equations. Indeed, the application drives the introduction of the mathematics.
