  1. Population Modeling with M and M's

    30 May 2015 | Articles and Publications | Contributor(s): Brian Winkel

    Several activities in which population dynamics can be modeled by tossing M&M’s® candy are presented. Physical activities involving MandM’s can be modeled by difference equations and several population phenomena, including death and immigration, are studied. 

  2. Browsing Your Way to Better Teaching

    31 May 2015 | Articles and Publications | Contributor(s): Brian Winkel

    We describe the use of browsing and searching (in libraries, on-line, inside sources, at meetings, in abstracts, etc.) as a way to stimulate the teacher of undergraduate mathematics, specifically in differential equations. The approach works in all other areas of mathematics. Browsing...
