We introduce SIMIODE - Systemic Initiative for Modeling Investigations and Opportunities with Differential Equations.  We will describe the purpose, operation, and possibilities of a web-based community of teachers and learners of differential equations through modeling and use of technology throughout the learning process. SIMIODE offers an NSF developed HUB environment for the community of learners with rich and complete (all material – textual, scenarios, mathematical, models, data sets, activities, assessments, evaluations, projects, etc. – at SIMIODE HUB)  resources for teaching modeling and technology based differential equations courses. We will engage in modeling and being a member of the SIMIODE community at this session. In one sense modeling could be said to be the ultimate inquiry-based learning experience and we plan, through engagement, to richly illustrate the power of community in SIMIODE.


Brian Winkel is Emeritus Professor of Mathematical Sciences at the United States Military Academy at West Point and Director of SIMIODE
