Browsing Your Way to Better Teaching
31 May 2015 | Contributor(s):: Brian Winkel
We describe the use of browsing and searching (in libraries, on-line, inside sources, at meetings, in abstracts, etc.) as a way to stimulate the teacher of undergraduate mathematics, specifically in differential equations. The approach works in all other areas of mathematics. Browsing...
Population Modeling with M and M's
30 May 2015 | Contributor(s):: Brian Winkel
Several activities in which population dynamics can be modeled by tossing M&M’s® candy are presented. Physical activities involving MandM’s can be modeled by difference equations and several population phenomena, including death and immigration, are studied.
