Leading Undergraduate Research Projects in Mathematical Modeling
Seshaiyer, Padmanabhan
PRIMUS, v27 n4-5 p476-493 2017
In this article, we provide some useful perspectives and experiences in mentoring students in undergraduate research (UR) in mathematical modeling using differential equations. To engage students in this topic, we present a systematic approach to the creation of rich problems from real-world phenomena; present mathematical models that are derived from calculus, but can be suitably modified to solve more complex problems; and finally provide pointers on how to train students through the UR process that can help to impact student's future academic and non-academic careers.
