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.

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.

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 first-order ordinary differential equations (which...
