The Student Competition in Undergraduate Differential Equations Modeling (SCUDEM) is an annual international week-long competition designed to give students experience using differential equations to model real-world scenarios. Each team has a faculty coach, and at each regional competition host site the faculty coaches meet to for a faculty development program on the opportunities for modeling in the classroom. We will give details on the spring 2018 competition, specifically its impact on student creativity and understanding of differential equations and its effectiveness in promoting intercollegiate faculty discussion on the roll of modeling in the classroom.
