SCUDEM Webinar for Students and Coaches - Conversation About Engaging in SCUDEM

At 4:00 PM, Eastern United States Time, Monday, 27 September 2021, SIMIODE will offer a live (one-hour) webinar for registered Students and Coaches on SCUDEM issues, with opportunities for helpful details, guiding materials, practical advice, discussions, questions, and clarifications. We will send out to these registered colleagues the URL for the Webinar on 26 September 2021. The session will be conducted by Brian Winkel, Director SIMIODE, and Anthony Stefan, Florida Institute of Technology. We will record the session and post it on YouTube with a reference to how to find the video in this space after the Webinar.

SCUDEMSIMIODE Challenge Using Differential Equations Modeling is a 3-student group modeling challenge that runs over multiple days culminating in a 10 minute video which is reviewed by at least 3 judges. Teams and Coaches may meet remotely. Team submissions will be judged Outstanding, Meritorious, or Successful.

Teams choose one of the Challenge Problems provided in the areas of

  • physics/engineering,
  • chemistry/life sciences,
  • social sciences/humanities,

and develop a model using differential or difference equations and a presentation.

Watch presentations from SCUDEM V 2020 Outstanding Award recipients at SIMIODE's YouTube playlist. Read the full details about all our past events, including problem statements and results, in our wiki.

See Complete Rules for details of the challenge.

We need volunteer Coaches and Judges so please volunteer.

SCUDEM is administered by SIMIODE, a non-profit Community of Practice focused on a modeling first approach to teaching differential equations. We are in the process of migrating fully to QUBES.

Please feel free to share this News Release on SCUDEM VI 2021 with colleagues.
