20 Sep 2020  Modeling Scenarios
A simple first order population growth model is presented. The challenge is to produce a final differential equation which is the result of the difference or ratio of birth and death rates. This ratio is not immediately intuitive.

3105SFrequencyResponse
22 Jul 2020  Modeling Scenarios
We describe the frequency response to a second order differential equation with a driving function as the maximum steady state solution amplitude and perform some analyses in this regard.

3034TCarSuspensions
14 Jul 2020  Modeling Scenarios
In this modeling activity, students examine the springmassdashpot that is part of a car suspension. We model a "quarter car'', meaning a single wheel, and compare effects of different masses, spring constants, damping coefficients, and the angle at which the assembly is...

3034SCarSuspensions
14 Jul 2020  Modeling Scenarios
We examine the springmassdashpot that is part of a car suspension, how the ride is related to parameter values, and the effect of changing the angle of installation. We model a "quarter car'', meaning a single wheel.

3027SBobbingDropping
10 Jul 2020  Modeling Scenarios
We present two exercises from a differential equations text in which we ask students to model (1) falling object experiencing terminal velocity and (2) bobbing block of wood in liquid. We model the motion using Newton's Second Law of Motion and Archimedes' Principle.

1136SMarriageAge
11 Jun 2020  Modeling Scenarios
Students will build and analyze a model of the fraction of people who are married (for the first time) by a certain age. This model comes from a paper by Hernes and, in this project, is compared to another model used by Coale.These models are firstorder ordinary differential equations (which...

3026SSpringInverseProblem
29 May 2020  Modeling Scenarios
We are given data on the position of a mass in an oscillating spring mass system and we seek to discover approaches to estimating an unknown parameter.

3031SSpringCost
28 May 2020  Modeling Scenarios
This is a situation where we are charged with analyzing costs for a spring to meet certain specifications.

6045SCholeraTranmission
19 Apr 2020  Modeling Scenarios
A recent cholera outbreak in Haiti brought public attention to this disease. Cholera, a diarrheal disease, is caused by an intestinal bacterium, and if not addressed in a timely manner may become fatal. During the project described here, the students will learn how to solve and address a...
