##### 1-001s-StochasticMDeathImmigration-ModelingScenario
We develop a mathematical model of a death and immigration process using m&ms as a stochastic process with the help of probability generating functions (pgf). We start with 50 m&ms in a bag.

##### 1-001d-HotelPopulationDecay-ModelingScenario
You will be modeling the following situation: 100 people are in a hotel. Each day, each person has a random chance of 50% of leaving the hotel. No new people enter the hotel. Before you run the simulation in MATLAB, answer some questions.

##### 1-046-GoingViral-ModelingScenario
Students participate in a simulation of the spread of a viral disease in the classroom and model the process with a logistic differential equation. The simulation uses random numbers and the entire class participates.

##### 1-047a-CondensationOptimization-ModelingScenario
We seek to optimize a condensation process which is modeled by a simulation using the random motion of 200 particles in a 50 by 50 square in which a particle bounces off the two vertical and top walls and condenses on the bottom wall.

##### 1-001B-DeathImmigrationMystery-ModelingScenario
We describe a classroom activity in which students use M\&M candies to simulate death and immigration. Each student conducts an experiment with an immigration rate unique to that student - of that student's choice

##### 1-011-Kinetics-ModelingScenario
We make the connection between chemistry course and differential equations coursework. We do this through modeling kinetics, or rates of chemical reaction. We study zeroth, first, and second order reactions.

##### 1-051-OneTankSaltModel-ModelingScenario
A large tank initially contains 60 pounds of salt dissolved into 90 gallons of water. Salt water flows in at a rate of 4 gallons per minute, with a salt density of 2 pounds per gallon. The incoming water is mixed in with the contents of the tank...

##### 1-055-WaterFallingInCone-ModelingScenario
We offer an opportunity to model the height of a falling body of water in a right circular cone (funnel) and to estimate an appropriate parameter based on data collected from a video of the experiment found on YouTube.

##### 1-057-FiguringFluidFlow-ModelingScenario
We propose three differential equations models for the height of a column of falling water as the water exits a small bore hole at the bottom of the cylinder and ask students to determine which model is the best of the three.

##### 1-058-WaterClocks-ModelingScenario
We apply Torricelli's Law to the task of building a water clock in which the height of the water in a container falls at a constant rate when the container has a hole in the bottom to let the water flow out.
