    1-015-Torricelli-ModelingScenario
    We help students develop a model (Torricelli's Law) for the height of a falling column of water with a small hole in the container at the bottom of the column of water through which water exits the column.

    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.

    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!
