  1. 3-013-S-WhiffleBallFall

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

    We are given data on the time and position of a whiffle ball as it falls to the ground. We attempt to model the falling ball and we confront the different resistance terms and models. Finally, we introduce a new way of comparing models, the Akaike Information Criterion, and apply it to our models.

  3. 1-003-S-CollegeSavings

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

    We present a modeling opportunity for students in which they have to plan and model for saving for a child's complete college education.

  4. 1-002-S-Tossing

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

    We offer students simulation experience or data from a simulation and ask them to model the simulation using several approaches, to include exponential decay fit, difference equation, and differential equation.We add a Hand Out Working Version which can be used in class authored by Rachel ...
