##### 3-002-ModelsMotivatingSecondOrder-ModelingScenario
Ordinary differential equations involve second derivatives and second derivatives appear in many contexts, chief among them are the study of forces and resulting motion. This is principally because of Newton's Second Law of Motion.

##### 3-031-SpringCost-ModelingScenario
We assume students are familiar with overdamping and underdamping of a spring-mass-dashpot system. Students will apply this knowledge to model the interplay between spring constant, tolerance, and cost.

##### 1-118-SolowEconomicGrowth-ModelingScenario
Students construct and analyze the celebrated Solow-Swan model of economic growth theory. The project is divided into three sequential parts to teach students to understand, develop, and analyze a simple nonlinear model of economic dynamics.

##### 3-027-BobbingDropping-ModelingScenario
We present two exercises in which we ask students to model (1) falling object experiencing terminal velocity and (2) bobbing block of wood in liquid. We model the motion using Newton's Second Law of Motion and Archimedes' Principle.

##### 4-050-ResonanceBeats-ModelingScenario
We study what can happen when a pure oscillator (no damper) is driven by a forced vibration function which has the same or close to the same natural frequency as the system it is driving.

##### 3-034-CarSuspension-ModelingScenario
We examine the spring-mass-dashpot that is part of a car suspension, how the ride is related to parameter values, and the effect of changing the angle of installation. We model a ``quarter car'', meaning a single wheel.

##### 3-001-SpringMassDataAnalysis-ModelingScenario
We offer data on position of a mass at end of spring over time where the spring mass configuration has damping due to taped flat index cards at the bottom of the mass. Modeling of a spring mass configuration and estimation of parameters are the core.

##### 3-090-OneSpringMass-ModelingScenario
We lead students through building a mathematical model for a single mass (bob)-spring system that is hanging vertically. We also lead the students, using data that they collect together with their model to approximate the value of the spring...

##### 2000-Idels-Wang-Harvesting Fisheries Management Strategies With Modified Effort Function
This study concludes that a control parameter beta (the magnitude of the effect of the fish population size on the fishing effort function E), changes not only the rate at which the population goes to equilibrium, but also the equilibrium values.
