  1. 1-001c-S-PopulationDecayThenSome

    18 Jun 2019 | | Contributor(s):: Dina Yagodich

    This is an adaption of Modeling Scenario 1-001-S-MandMDeathAndImmigration  in which death and immigration of m&m's is replaced by check outs and arrivals in a hotel and makes specific use of MatLab coding.

  2. 1-125-S-DiceyPopulations

    04 Mar 2019 | | Contributor(s):: Brian Winkel

    We offer students an opportunity to generate unique data for their team on a death and immigration model using 12 and 20 sided dice and then pass on the data to another student team for analysis with a model they built. The key is to recover the parameters and try to explain how the simulation...

    John  Thoo, Department of Mathematics and Statistics, Yuba College, offers detailed narrative review on his use of this material

  5. Population Modeling with M and M's

    30 May 2015 | | Contributor(s):: Brian Winkel

    Several activities in which population dynamics can be modeled by tossing M&M’s® candy are presented. Physical activities involving MandM’s can be modeled by difference equations and several population phenomena, including death and immigration, are studied. 

  6. 1-001-S-MandMDeathAndImmigration

    30 May 2015 | | Contributor(s):: Brian Winkel

    We describe a classroom activity in which students use M&M candies to simulate death and immigration. Students build a mathematical model, collect data, estimate parameters, and compare their model prediction with their actual data. There is a video of one run of the main simulation in this...
