  3. 7-011-Text-S-CoupledSystemLaplace

    31 Mar 2019 | | Contributor(s):: Mitaxi Pranlal Mehta

    Differential equations and Laplace transforms are an integral part of control problems in engineering systems. However a clear explanation of the relationship of Laplace transforms with the differential equation formalism is difficult to find for coupled differential equations. Here we describe...

  8. 1-003-S-Text-IntroNumericalMethods

    10 Jan 2019 | | Contributor(s):: Brian Winkel

    We ask students to develop two numerical methods for solving first order differential equations  geometrically and to compute numeric solutions and compare them to the analytic solutions for a number of different step sizes. 

  9. 1-063-S-ThreeHoleColumn

    15 Dec 2018 | | Contributor(s):: Brian Winkel

    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.

  13. 6-065-S-InternetPlatformUsers

    30 Oct 2018 | | Contributor(s):: Victoria Rayskin

    A model estimating the volume of users interacting through a two-sided Internet platform (allowing interaction of two types of users) will teach students how to analyze a 2-dimensional dynamical system. The model will illustrate how the question of existence of closed orbits can be investigated....
