    9-014-TurkeyCook-ModelingScenario
    The goal of this project is to investigate several models for the cooking time for a turkey based on weight, test these models with data obtained from heating curves for turkeys of various weights, and develop a new model to fit this data.

    1-001-MM-DeathAndImmigration-ModelingScenario
    We describe a classroom activity in which students use M&M candies to simulate death and immigration. Students build a mathematical model, usually a linear first order, difference or differential equation, collect data, estimate parameters, and...

    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.

    1-017-DiseaseSpread-ModelingScenario
    Using a grid and m&m candies, we simulate the spread of disease. Students conduct the simulation and collect data to estimate parameters (in several ways) in a differential equation model for the spread of the disease.
