  1. 9-002-S-GroundWaterFlow

    31 Aug 2020 | Modeling Scenarios

    The goals of this project are to compare a conceptual one-dimensional groundwater flow model to observations made in a laboratory setting, and to discuss the differences. We derive the initial groundwater flow equation, and guide students through a solution. We describe the laboratory set up and...

  2. Remote Teaching Module - Car Suspensions

    28 Jul 2020 | General Resources | Contributor(s): Karen Bliss

    In this modeling activity, students examine the spring-mass-dashpot 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 installed....

    16 Jun 2020 | General Resources | Contributor(s): Karen Bliss

    We place here all the materials in support of the SIMIODE Remote Teaching Module - Spring Design to Meet Specs at Minimum Costs. This  Module is about second order, linear, ordinary differential equations.The class lesson starts with building a model of a spring-mass using...

  11. 1-088-S-RoomTemperature

    15 Jun 2020 | Modeling Scenarios | Contributor(s): Karen Bliss

    Students will analyze temperature variations in a room using Newton's Cooling Law. In this model, the only influence on the indoor temperature is the (oscillating) outdoor temperature (as we assume the heating/cooling system is broken). The main goal of this project is for students to set up...
