Webbased resources:
Our previous texts:
Boyce and DiPrima, Elementary Differential Equations and Boundary Value
Problems, Seventh Edition (our Math. 350 text).
Look at 3.8, p. 186 ff, ff.: We will carefully review the derivation of
the vibrating spring, and also look at the derivation of of pendulum motion
from several points of view.
9.49.5 (competing species).
9.8: The Lorenz equations: We will also look at additional literature seeing
how these equations were derived.
Appendix A, p. 614 (derivation of the heat conduction equation)
McKallum, HughesHallet, and Gleason, Multivariate Calculus, Third Edition
(our Math. 302 text): There are various simple models here.
Additional texts:

Hentley and James, Mathematical Modelling: A Source Book of Case Studies,
Oxford University Press, Oxford, 1990: This is a source of possible projects.
