Modeling Scenarios (1-3 of 3)

  1. 1-190-S-IntroClass

    05 Mar 2022 | | Contributor(s):: Bill Skerbitz

    Students are led step by step through the development of introductory ideas in mathematical modeling with differential equations. They will encounter the fundamental ideas underlying unlimited population growth (exponential models), limited population growth (logistic models), and a coupled...

  2. 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...

  3. 1-143-S-PopulationModelVariationsMATLAB

    17 Feb 2019 | | Contributor(s):: Bill Skerbitz

    Students will walk through a detailed derivation and review of basic population models (exponential and logistic) to create and understand variations of those models while learning some basic MATLAB functions for working with differential equations.  They will also work with other utilities...
