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 springmass system into a larger model, and how they can use the model to help determine the results of a dynamical...

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

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....

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,...
