  1. 6-010-S-SocialCampaigns

    23 Sep 2018 | Modeling Scenarios | Contributor(s): Hyunsun Lee

    Mathematical epidemic models are crucial tools to understand, analyze, predict, and control infectious diseases. The Susceptible-Infected-Recovered (SIR) model is a basic compartment model,...


  2. 6-024-S-DronePackageDelivery

    18 Sep 2018 | Modeling Scenarios | Contributor(s): Eric Stachura, Robert Krueger

    In this scenario, students will begin by carefully reading through the problem statement and uncovering which information is useful. Students will derive a system of differential equations which...


  3. 6-019-S-EnablingEpidemicExploration

    17 Sep 2018 | Modeling Scenarios | Contributor(s): Brian Winkel

    We offer several strategies for estimating parameters in models of epidemics, one using a Michaelis-Menten saturation infected rate.


  4. 1-062-S-BacterialGrowth

    15 Sep 2018 | Modeling Scenarios | Contributor(s): Arati Nanda Pati

    We offer students a simulation experience or data from a simulation and ask them to model the simulation using several approaches andusing EXCEL spreadsheet. In this particular modeling scenario,...


  5. 6-006-T-ZombieGameHvZ

    09 Sep 2018 | Modeling Scenarios | Contributor(s): Jue Wang

    Invented in 2005, Humans vs. Zombies, or HvZ, is a game of tag, predominantly played at US college campuses. In this activity, students use systems of non-linear differential equations to model...
