02 Sep 2019   Contributor(s):: Jeff Pettit
Students perform experiments to model spread of information within a population. Students collect data, determine essential components and parameters and build a mathematical model which can be compared to predicted data, measured data, and modeled data. Part 3 can require students to move from...

1084SGoingViral
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...

3067SRLCSeriesCircuit
28 Apr 2019   Contributor(s):: Virgil Ganescu
In this validationoriented setup, the second order linear ordinary differential governing equation of a small signal RLC series AC circuit is solved analytically, and the results are compared with the data acquired from analyzing the numerical model (using Multisim).

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...
