  4. 1-064-S-TorricelliBox

    14 Aug 2017 | | Contributor(s):: Brian Winkel

    The time it takes a column of water to empty and the time it takes the same volume of column of water with a box (various sizes) submerged in the column of water are compared through modeling with Torricelli's Law.

  5. 1-022-S-SpreadOfTechnology

    27 Nov 2015 | | Contributor(s):: Brian Winkel

    We examine  plots on the  spread of technologies and ask students to estimate and extract data from the plots and then model several of these spread of technologies phenomena with a logistic differential equation model.

    04 Jun 2015 | | Contributor(s):: Brian Winkel

     We describe an experiment and offer data from a previously conducted experiment on the perception of the individual mass of a collection of rocks in comparison to a 100 g brass mass. We lead students to use the logistic differential equation as a reasonable model, estimate the parameters,...

  12. 1-018-S-LogisticPopGrowth

    04 Jun 2015 | | Contributor(s):: Brian Winkel

    We offer artificial (toy) and historical data on limited growth population situations in the study of protozoa and lead students through several approaches to estimating parameters and determining the validity of the logistic  model in these situations. 

  13. 1-017-S-DiseaseSpread

    04 Jun 2015 | | Contributor(s):: Brian Winkel

    We offer a physical situation, using a grid and M and M candies, to simulate the spread of disease. Students conduct the simulation and collect the data which is used to estimate parameters (in several ways)  in a differential equation model for the spread of the disease. Students ...
