These problems introduce simple mathematical models to help us understand how complex systems change with time.
Many natural systems appear to be in equilibrium until suddenly a critical point is reached, setting up a mudslide or an avalanche or an earthquake. In this project, students will use a simple simulation game to investigate the properties of such systems.
Simple models which help us to investigate how epidemics grow and die out.
This problem explores the biology behind Rudolph's glowing red nose.
