This is the file for the talk given by Brian Winkel, Director SIMIODE, at the Socieitiy for Mathematical Biologiy 2020 Conference held online, 17-21 August 2020. Here is the Abstract:
SIMIODE is an NSF funded Community of Practice based at www.simiode.org which supports faculty and students in efforts to motivate and teach differential equations in context through modeling. While differential equations is a widely applicable branch of mathematics we share a number of efforts in biological applications which are featured in SIMIODE: population growth, death, and immigration; ant tunnel building; LSD and problem solving; malaria and Ebola; acorns, rodents, and snakes; crop harvesting; intraocular gas bubbles; tumor growth; drug administration; inner ear drug delivery; epidemics; yeast population growth; and dialysis.
We discuss examples of modeling in the life sciences using data and the full modeling cycle, while introducing mathematical content and supporting students in learning the underlying mathematics.
Further, we share news of SCUDEM - SIMIODE Challenge Using Differential Equations Modeling, now in its fifth year is an annual international team challenge, in which students engage in model building using differential equations and share their results for faculty judging and commentary and peer review.
