##### 1-008-HangTime-ModelingScenario
We present a modeling opportunity for students in which they model the vertical position of a basketball player taking a jump shot. The goal of the scenario is to get students to consider the meaning of the notion ``hang-tune.''

##### 1-002-IntegratingFactor-TechniqueNarrative
We develop a strategy to solve first order differential equations by transforming one side of the equation to the derivative of a product of two functions, thereby making it easy to antidifferentiate that side.

##### 1-021-FeralCatControl-ModelingScenario
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...

##### 1-039-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.
