  1. 9-020-S-HeatDiffusion

    14 Oct 2019 | | Contributor(s):: Kimberly Spayd, James Puckett

    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...

  2. 1-111-S-SpreadOfInformation

    02 Sep 2019 | | Contributor(s):: Jeff Pettit

    Students perform experiments to model spread of information within a population. Students collect data, determine essential components and parameters and build a mathematical model which can be compared to predicted data, measured data, and modeled data. Part 3 can require students to move from...

  3. 1-092-S-DashItAll

    01 Sep 2019 | | Contributor(s):: Kurt Bryan

    This project uses very basic physics, Newton's Second Law of Motion, to model the motion of a sprinter running down a track. The model is driven by data from the world record race of Usain Bolt in the 2008 Beijing Olympic games. In particular, we derive the classic Hill-Keller model for a...

  4. Ice Coverage in the Arctic Climate over time

    17 Aug 2019 | | Contributor(s):: Wisam Victor Yossif Bukaita, Kelcey Meaney, Angie Dimopulos

    In this paper, entitled Ice Coverage in the Arctic Climate, from two students, Angie Dimopulos and Kelcey Heaney, and their professor, Dr. Wisam Bukaita, ice coverage in the Arctic is modeled over time. We present their abstract here and include the paper itself.ABSTRACT The Arctic plays a...

  5. 1-107-S-ClothDry

    27 Apr 2019 | | Contributor(s):: Brian Winkel

    We build a mathematical model for the rate at which drying takes place in a cloth wet with water while hanging in air. A model can be based on underlying physical principles. Such a model is called an analytic model. Or your model could be based on observations and reasoned terms in your...

  6. 1-053-S-SlimeSpread

    30 Aug 2018 | | Contributor(s):: Brian Winkel

    We offer a video showing real time spread of a cylinder of slime and challenge students to build a mathematical model for this phenomenon.

  7. 1-054-S-GrowthInFarmland

    14 Aug 2018 | | Contributor(s):: Richard Spindler

    An enriching project developing a model from data with missing temporal information is described. Students fit functions to the data that leads to the creation of a differential equations model, which they then are required to analyze in multiple ways. Different fits, modeling approaches, and...
