    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.

  11. Browsing Your Way to Better Teaching

    31 May 2015 | Articles and Publications | 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...

  16. Population Modeling with M and M's

    30 May 2015 | Articles and Publications | 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. 

  17. 1-004-S-MicroorganismImmigration

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

    We present a modeling opportunity for population death with non-constant immigration and suggest the use of both discrete and continuous models with a comparison of results.

  20. 1-001-S-MandMDeathAndImmigration

    30 May 2015 | Modeling Scenarios | 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 this...
