  1. Hello,

    I would like to introduce you to an exciting project: SIMIODE – Systemic Initiative for Modeling Investigations and Opportunities with Differential Equations. SIMIODE is about teaching differential equations using modeling and technology upfront and throughout the learning process. Learn more at our dynamic website, http://www.simiode.org, where we offer a community in which colleagues can communicate, collaborate, publish, teach, explore, contribute, etc.

    We are building a complete environment for teachers and learners – communication, groups across and intra/inter campus projects for students and teachers, models, data, videos. For the latter see our YouTube videos at http://www.youtube.com/channel/UC4y1q6ShHIjRUm7NrM9_dOg where students can collect data on Torricelli’s Law and model it with a first principle physics approach for building a differential equation.

    Once inside http://www.simiode.org you can see all the material associated with the Torricelli’s Law video in the Modeling Scenario section of our Resources found on our home page. Check It out and also check out our very interesting way of starting a differential course with the student version of the Modeling Scenario on M&M Death and Immigration.

    Join a group, start a group, begin a discussion, and then collaborate and communicate with others who are interested in teaching differential equations using modeling and technology. Join SIMIODE! It is FREE!

    We also have a Manuscript Management system, FastTrack, (http://simiode.expressacademic.org) which handles reviews of material submitted to SIMIODE. We need your help to build this community of innovative educators:

    1. Please register as a referee.

    2. Please contribute to this community as an author.

    If this is not your thing, please share this opportunity with your colleagues who are interested in teaching differential equations and who are interested in exciting students with a new approach.

    Thank you.
