We describe a modeling activity for students in which modeling with difference and differential equations is appropriate. We have used this model in our coursework for years and have found that it enlightens students as to the model building process and parameter estimation for a ...

1001SMandMDeathAndImmigration
30 May 2015   Contributor(s):: Brian Winkel
We describe a classroom activity in which students use M&M candies to simulate death and immigration. Students build a mathematical model, collect data, estimate parameters, and compare their model prediction with their actual data. There is a video of one run of the main simulation in...
