  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. 10-001-S-TilingHallway

    12 Sep 2019 | | Contributor(s):: Rob Krueger, Eric Stachura

    Students will investigate difference equations through the context of tiling hallways. Students will observe patterns in the tiling which will lead to a difference equation model. Solutions will be calculated by iteration.  Then students will be introduced to the concept of the shift...

  3. 1-084-S-GoingViral

    31 Aug 2019 | | Contributor(s):: Bill Skerbitz

    Students employ randomization in order to create a simulation of the spread of a viral disease in a population (the classroom).  Students then use qualitative analysis of the expected behavior of the virus to devise a logistic differential equation.  Finally, students solve the...
