##### 3-011-EulerBallThrowing-ModelingScenario
If a tennis ball is thrown through the air it will hit the ground due to gravity. Using Euler's method, write a short script (Python, Matlab, R, etc.) to find the trajectory of the ball which will maximize the distance the ball lands from the...

##### 5-005-StiffDifferentialEquations-TechniqueNarrative
This material introduces the topic of ``stiffness'' for a system of ordinary differential equations (ODE's), through a series of examples. Stiffness is a property that a system of ODE's may posses that make it difficult to solve numerically.
