27 Aug 2018  Modeling Scenarios
In this project students will learn to find a probability distribution using the classical M&M game in SIMIODE.

1108SPoissonProcess
27 Aug 2018  Modeling Scenarios
In this project students learn to derive the probability density function (pdf) of the Poisson distribution and the cumulative distribution (cdf) of the waiting time. They will use them to solve problems in stochastic processes.

7040STankInterruptMixing
22 Aug 2018  Modeling Scenarios
We present a differential equation model for the interrupted mixing of a tank with salt water. We offer two solution strategies (1) two step approach and (2) Laplace Transforms.

1067SModelingWithSigmoidCurves
18 Aug 2018  Modeling Scenarios
The assignment considers two wellknown models of population growth, VerhulstPearl and Gompertz models, for which qualitative and quantitative analyses are provided. The graphs of the corresponding functions have a sigmoidal or Sshape. The assignment contains two opposite, but related tasks:...

1032SDigoxinElimination
17 Aug 2018  Modeling Scenarios
We model the concentration of digoxin eliminated from the human body at a rate proportional to the concentration. This is a ``firstorder reaction'' in the language of pharmacokinetics  the study of how drugs move in the body. This activity can be used to introduce compartmentalized...

1130SAspirinAbsorption
15 Aug 2018  Modeling Scenarios
We model the amount of aspirin absorbed by the human body at a constant rate. This is a ``zeroorder reaction'' in the language of pharmacokinetics  the study of how drugs move in the body. This simple activity can be used to introduce differential equations and it can be used to...
