  3. 1-015-S-Torricelli

    03 Jun 2015 | Modeling Scenarios | Contributor(s):: Brian Winkel

    We  model the height of a falling column of water in a  right circular cylinder (radius = 4.17 cm) emptying through a small hole on the side of the cylinder.  Indeed, in all the videos below where are referred to in this Modeling Scenario the cylinder is a 2 liter soda pop...

  4. 1-013-S-Sleuthing

    03 Jun 2015 | Modeling Scenarios | Contributor(s):: Brian Winkel

    We present several situations in which differential equation models serve to aid in sleuthing and general investigations. One involves initial speed given information about constant deceleration and distance to stop in traffic incident; one involves modeling a steel ball launched vertically and...

  6. 1-011-S-Kinetics

    03 Jun 2015 | Modeling Scenarios | Contributor(s):: Brian Winkel

    We help students see the connection between college level chemistry course work and their differential equations coursework. We do this through modeling kinetics, or rates of chemical reaction. We offer many opportunities to model these chemical reactions with data, some of which comes from...

  7. 5-001-S-LSDAndProblemSolving

    02 Jun 2015 | Modeling Scenarios | Contributor(s):: Brian Winkel

    We ask students to build differential equations to model lysergic acid diethylamide (LSD) in the body. We provide the data from the literature. We offer students the opportunity to build a model to fully analyze the administration and absorption of LSD in 8 student volunteers. We also...

  10. 1-031-S-CoolIt

    02 Jun 2015 | Modeling Scenarios | Contributor(s):: Brian Winkel

    We offer data on the temperature of water in a beaker which resides in a room of constant temperature and also in an environment of nonconstant temperature. Students are encouraged to consider both empirical and analytic modeling approaches. We offer additional data sets in Excel spreadsheets...

  15. 1-007-S-AntTunnelBuilding

    31 May 2015 | Modeling Scenarios | Contributor(s):: Brian Winkel

    We pose the prospect of modeling just how long an ant takes to build a tunnel. With a bit of guidance students produce a model for the time it takes to build a tunnel of length x into the side of a damp sandy hill.SPANISH LANGUAGE VERSION  We have placed in Supporting Docs both...
