Here Comes the Hurricane! Saving Lives through Logical Reasoning and Computer Science

Students use a hurricane tracking map to measure the distance from a ... (more)

Students use a hurricane tracking map to measure the distance from a specific latitude and longitude location of the eye of a hurricane to a city. Then they use the map's scale factor to convert the distance to miles. They also apply the distance formula by creating an x-y coordinate plane on the map. Students are challenged to analyze what data might be used by computer science engineers to write code that generates hurricane tracking models. Then students analyze a MATLAB® computer code that uses the distance formula repetitively to generate a table of data that tracks a hurricane at specific time intervals. Students come to realize that using a computer program to generate the calculations (instead of by hand) is very advantageous for a dynamic situation like tracking storm movements. Their inspection of some MATLAB code helps them understand how it communicates what to do using mathematical formulas, logical instructions and repeated tasks. They also conclude that the example program is too simplistic to really be a useful tool; useful computer model tools must necessarily be much more complex. (less)

This Teaching Resource provides lecture notes, slides, and a problem set that can assist in teaching concepts related to dynamical systems tools for the analysis of ordinary differential equation (ODE)–based models. The concepts are applied to familiar biological problems, and the material is appropriate for graduate students or advanced undergraduates. The lecture explains how equations describing biochemical signaling networks can be derived from diagrams that illustrate the reactions in graphical form. Because such reactions are most frequently described using systems of ODEs, the lecture discusses and illustrates the principles underlying the numerical solution of ODEs. Methods for determining the stability of steady-state solutions of one or two-dimensional ODE systems are covered and illustrated using standard graphical methods. The concept of a bifurcation, a condition at which a system’s behavior changes qualitatively, is also introduced. A problem set is included that (i) requires students to implement an ODE model of biochemical reactions using MATLAB and (ii) allows them to explore dynamical systems concepts. (less)

" 9.63 teaches principles of experimental methods in human perception and cognition, including design and statistical analysis. The course combines lectures and hands-on experimental exercises and requires an independent experimental project. Some experience in programming is desirable. To foster improved writing and presentation skills in conducting and critiquing research in cognitive science, students are required to provide reports and give oral presentations of three team experiments. A fourth individually conducted experiment includes a proposal with revision, and concluding written and oral reports." (less)

Students groups act as aerospace engineering teams competing to create linear equations to guide space shuttles safely through obstacles generated by a modeling game in level-based rounds. Each round provides a different configuration of the obstacle, which consists of two "gates." The obstacles are presented as asteroids or comets, and the linear equations as inputs into autopilot on board the shuttle. The winning group is the one that first generates the successful equations for all levels. The game is created via the programming software MATLAB, available as a free 30-day trial. The activity helps students make the connection between graphs and the real world. In this activity, they can see the path of a space shuttle modeled by a linear equation, as if they were looking from above. (less)
