  3. 5-012-T-LipoproteinMetabolism

    10 Sep 2015 | Modeling Scenarios

    Data from a study on the amounts of  low-density-lipoprotein (LDL), a form of cholesterol, in blood plasma  is presented. Students  build, validate, and use a compartment model of the kinetic exchange of the LDL between the extravascular body tissue and the blood plasma.

  4. 3-042-T-CatapultLaunch

    09 Sep 2015 | Modeling Scenarios

    We maximize the range of a projectile by backing up an incline in the opposite direction of the range to give some initial lift. Find the position on the hill from which to launch the projectile to give  the best lift.
