  3. 4-020-T-AnIEDBlast

    26 Feb 2016 | Modeling Scenarios | Contributor(s): Jonathan Paynter, George Hughbanks

    These three exercises offer students a chance to solidify their understanding of modeling with second order ordinary differential equations (ODEs), how they might incorporate a spring-mass system into a larger model, and how they can use the model to help determine the results of a dynamical...

  4. 7-006-S-Text-LaplaceTransformBirth

    24 Feb 2016 | Technique Narratives | Contributor(s): Sania Qureshi

    We present a way of introducing the Laplace Transform as the continuous analogue of a power series expression of a function.

  5. Different Technologies in Use

    22 Feb 2016 | Articles and Publications | Contributor(s): Brian Winkel

    We offer a student posting at the Differential Equations and Fourier Series group found on FaceBook to illustrate the different technologies in use.  We believe what follows illustrates the different technologies faculty and students can use and their preferences for many different reasons....

  7. 6-025-T-WhalesAndKrill

    18 Feb 2016 | Modeling Scenarios | Contributor(s): Lydia Kennedy

    Students will use Excel to observe qualitative behavior in a simulation of a predator-prey model, with blue whales and krill as the predator and prey populations, respectively.  Students are asked to explain terms in the system of differential equations, compute population values using...

  9. 1-080-T-Drug Administration

    16 Feb 2016 | Modeling Scenarios | Contributor(s): Brian Winkel

    A simple drug administration situation is modeled with only two observations.

  10. 1-050-T-BargingAhead

    10 Feb 2016 | Modeling Scenarios | Contributor(s): Timothy Pennings

    As captain of a barge, you need to determine how fast to transport your barge up river against the current in order to minimize the expended energy. Since expended energy is proportional to the force, and since the force is proportional to the speed, traveling too fast is inefficient. However,...
