  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...

  3. 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...
