  1. 9-020-T-HeatDiffusion

    14 Oct 2019 | Modeling Scenarios

    This project guides students through experimental, analytical, and numerical techniques for understanding the heat (diffusion) equation with nonhomogeneous boundary conditions. In particular, students collect data and model a physical scenario in which heat energy diffuses through a long, thin...

In particular, students collect data and model a physical scenario in which heat energy diffuses through a long, thin...

  3. 1-087-T-ThanosPopulationDynamics

    07 Oct 2019 | Modeling Scenarios

    In the end of the “Avengers Infinity War,” the villain Thanos snaps his fingers and turns half of all living creatures to dust with the hope of restoring balance to the natural world. How does this affect the long term behavior of various species? Investigate the validity of...

  5. 1-084-T-GoingViral

    31 Aug 2019 | Modeling Scenarios

    Students employ randomization in order to create a simulation of the spread of a viral disease in a population (the classroom).  Students then use qualitative analysis of the expected behavior of the virus to devise a logistic differential equation.  Finally, students solve the...

  7. 1-076-T-ClimateBifurcation

    08 Aug 2019 | Modeling Scenarios

    In this paper we present (for educational purposes) simple zero and one dimensional models for the mean temperature of the Earth. These models can exhibit bifurcations from the present Earth climate to an ice age or a ``Venus type of climate.'' The models are accompanied by Matlab...

  8. 1-001d-T-HotelPopulationDecay

    03 Jul 2019 | Modeling Scenarios

    We offer students an opportunity to create a simulation model a hotel population with clients checking in and checking out according to two different disciplines as well as a number of different starting populations in the hotel.

  9. 1-001d-S-HotelPopulationDecay

    03 Jul 2019 | Modeling Scenarios

    We offer students an opportunity to create a simulation model a hotel population with clients checking in and checking out according to two different disciplines as well as a number of different starting populations in the hotel.

    Elizabeth Carlson, holder of NSF Graduate Research Fellowship at the University of Nebraska - Lincoln, Lincoln NE USA, gave a talk in the spring 2018 to the mathematics club at her school on Math Modeling Competitions. Enjoy!

  14. 1-109-S-EmployeeAttrition

    25 Mar 2019 | Modeling Scenarios

    This scenario models the loss of employees and the employer's attempt to retain them through stock options. This is intended for introductory students and is paired well with exponential growth/decay material. We also introduce the 5% rule to sort possible factors into assumptions and...

  15. 1-109-T-EmployeeAttrition

    25 Mar 2019 | Modeling Scenarios

    This scenario models the loss of employees and the employer's attempt to retain them through stock options. It most naturally is solved with a first-order linear decay model with two populations. This is intended for introductory students and is paired well with exponential growth/decay...
