This handson modeling scenario guides students through the development of an empirical model for the velocity and distance traveled of a simple pullback toy. Students can record videos and extract data using their own pullback toy or use data included in the student version. Two different...

3027SBobbingDropping
10 Jul 2020   Contributor(s):: Brian Winkel
We present two exercises from a differential equations text in which we ask students to model (1) falling object experiencing terminal velocity and (2) bobbing block of wood in liquid. We model the motion using Newton's Second Law of Motion and Archimedes' Principle.

1128SRocketFlight
04 Jun 2020   Contributor(s):: Brian Winkel
We offer an opportunity to build a mathematical model using Newton's Second Law of Motion and a Free Body Diagram to analyze the forces acting on the rocket of changing mass in its upward flight under power and then without power followed by its fall to earth.

9020SHeatDiffusion
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...

3011SEulerBallThrowing
19 Aug 2019   Contributor(s):: Chris McCarthy
If a tennis ball is thrown through the air it will eventually hit the ground due to gravity. Using Euler's method, write a short script (Python, Matlab, R, etc.) to find the trajectory of the ball which will maximize the distance the ball lands from the thrower taking into account air...

1063SThreeHoleColumn
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.
