The different possible dynamics of a two-person romantic relationship are modeled -- as a linear two dimensional system of equations -- and analyzed. Students are guided to explore how the mathematical model of one relationship type can be obtained by modifying the mathematical model of another....

The scenario uses an Inquiry Based Learning approach to walk the students through the creation and understanding of a differential equation describing how fluid in a water bottle will change its temperature to approach the ambient temperature in a room. The goal is for the students to understand...

This project uses the steady-state heat equation to model the temperature distribution in an industrial furnace used for metal production, for example, a blast furnace.The heat flow is assumed to be steady-state, so that only an elementary ordinary differential equation (ODE) is needed, and...

In this paper we present (for educational purposes) simple zero and one dimensional models for the mean temperature of the Earth. These models can exhibit bifurcations from the present Earth climate to an ice age or a ``Venus type of climate.'' The models are accompanied by Matlab...

This scenario takes students through the development of an invasive species partial differential equation model. Basic models are discussed first, which lead students to eventually develop their own model which takes into account dispersion. Students will explore various Mathematica modules...

This project introduces the concept of an inverse problem (or parameter estimation), in the context of the simple linearized pendulum ordinary differential equation. The theme of the project is that one often has a physical model for a system but in which the model contains unknown parameters or...
