##### 6-004-VillageEpidemic-ModelingScenario
Students are offered data from a plague epidemic that occurred in the middle of the seventeenth century in Eyam, a small English village. With only two assumptions offered to students they are to build a mathematical model.

##### 9-125-BeamModeling-ModelingScenario
This modeling scenario examines the deflection of a cantilever beam under two different distributed loads. Students will have the opportunity to conduct experiments with their own cantilever beam or use data provided to build a model.

##### 1-001-MM-DeathAndImmigration-ModelingScenario
We conduct a simulation of death and immigration, using a small set of "individuals", m&m candies or any two sided object (coin, chips), in which upon tossing a set of individuals we cause some to die and others then to immigrate. Modeling ensues!

##### 3-100-Ripcord-Toys-ModelingScenario
This modeling scenario examines the motion of a ripcord-powered toy with the goal of using real data to estimate parameters in a first-order model of the velocity of the toy. Students may conduct experiments or use videos to collect data.

##### 9-014-TurkeyCook-ModelingScenario
The goal of this project is to investigate several models for the cooking time for a turkey based on weight, test these models with data obtained from heating curves for turkeys of various weights, and develop a new model to fit this data.
