    1-007-AntTunnelBuilding-ModelingScenario
    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.

    1-015-DimensionlessVariables-TechniqueNarrative
    This material introduces the idea of ``rescaling'' for ordinary differential equations (ODE's) by the use of dimensionless variables. In practice this is an extremely common and useful prelude to the analysis and solution of ODE's.
