##### 1-015-Torricelli-ModelingScenario
We help students develop a model (Torricelli's Law) for the height of a falling column of water with a small hole in the container at the bottom of the column of water through which water exits the column.

##### 2009-Brian_Winkel-Modelling_Growth_Of_an_OilSlick
An oil-slick spreads at sea. From time to time, but irregularly, a helicopter is dispatched. On each trip, it arrives over the slick, the pilot takes a picture, waits 10 minutes, takes another, and heads home. Model this.

##### 3-103-PullBackCars-ModelingScenario
This activity offers analysis of a toy pull-back car: solution of a differential equation from model; data collection and parameter estimation; and adapting the model to predict maximum speed and distance traveled for a new pull-back distance.

##### 6-004-VillageEpidemic-ModelingScenario
Students are offered data from a plague epidemic that occurred in the middle of the seventeenth century in Eyam, a small English village. With only two assumptions offered to students they are to build a mathematical model.

##### 9-125-BeamModeling-ModelingScenario
This modeling scenario examines the deflection of a cantilever beam under two different distributed loads. Students will have the opportunity to conduct experiments with their own cantilever beam or use data provided to build a model.

##### 1-001-MM-DeathAndImmigration-ModelingScenario
We conduct a simulation of death and immigration, using a small set of "individuals", m&m candies or any two sided object (coin, chips), in which upon tossing a set of individuals we cause some to die and others then to immigrate. Modeling ensues!

##### 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.
