  1. 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...

  2. 1-084-S-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...

  3. 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...

  7. 3-009-T-BallDropInWater

    16 Dec 2018 | Modeling Scenarios

    We conduct an analysis of a falling ball in liquid to determine its terminal velocity and to ascertain just what radius ball for a given mass density is necessary to attain a designated terminal velocity.

  8. 1-063-T-ThreeHoleColumn

    15 Dec 2018 | Modeling Scenarios

    We consider a column of water with three holes or spigots through which water can exit and ask students to model the height of the column of water over time.
