Abstract

We demonstrate a number of mathematical modeling activities for motivating and learning differential equations using modeling and technology. We shall engage those present in at least one modeling activity and demonstrate others. These include population modeling with M&M’s (simple and logistic growth), sublimation of carbon dioxide, Torricelli’s Law, Tuned Mass Dampers, oil slick spread, coffee filters falling, spring mass systems.
