Students act as professional mathematical consultants and write a report analyzing the client's problem. The client company is a fictional organization which advocates for the use of trap-neuter-return (TNR) as a control method for feral cat...

1-020-IceMelt-ModelingScenario
We offer up the claim of a store catalog that its ice ball mold allows users to ``. . . make ice balls that outlast cubes and won't water drinks down.'' We ask students to build a mathematical model to defend or contradict this claim.

1-011A-Kinetics-ModelingScenario
We help students see the connection between college level chemistry course work and their differential equations coursework. We do this through modeling kinetics, or rates of chemical reaction.

1-032-WordPropagation-ModelingScenario
This activity is a gentle introduction to modeling via differential equations. The students will learn about exponential growth by modeling the rate at which the word jumbo has propagated through English language texts over time.

1-005B-ChemDataCollection-ModelingScenario
A chemistry graduate student is collecting data on a chemical reaction and does a poor job of collecting the data. Indeed, he only collects the data at the start and end of a number of three minute intervals and does not note the times.

1-039-StochasticPopModels-ModelingScenario
We develop strategies for creating a population model using some simple probabilistic assumptions. These assumptions lead to a system of differential equations for the probability that a system is in state (or population size) n at time t.
