15 Jun 2020   Contributor(s):: Tracy Weyand
Students will analyze temperature variations in a room using Newton's Cooling Law. In this model, the only influence on the indoor temperature is the (oscillating) outdoor temperature (as we assume the heating/cooling system is broken). The main goal of this project is for students to set up...

1136SMarriageAge
11 Jun 2020   Contributor(s):: Tracy Weyand
Students will build and analyze a model of the fraction of people who are married (for the first time) by a certain age. This model comes from a paper by Hernes and, in this project, is compared to another model used by Coale.These models are firstorder ordinary differential equations (which...
