|SIMIODE & SCUDEM IV 2019 Invitation|
We write to you because you teach mathematics.
We introduce you to SIMIODE – Systemic Initiative for Modeling Investigations and Opportunities with Differential Equations, a community of colleagues at simiode.org who are interested in using modeling to motivate and teach differential equations, a pivotal STEM course. All is FREE in SIMIODE. SIMIODE is a collegial source of hundreds of ideas and rich activities for doing modeling while offering opportunities to meet and collaborate with colleagues of like mind. SIMIODE is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization which is funded by the National Science Foundation.
Browse our resources available at simiode.org for students. Join us and gain access to all our materials for teachers. SIMIODE is FREE – NO COST! All materials at SIMIODE are available for use and modification in accordance with the most generous Creative Commons license. You can also contribute your own projects in our double-blind, peer-reviewed online publication at SIMIODE as well as comment on other SIMIODE resources. If you know of a colleague who might be interested in our work then please pass this along. Thank you.
SIMIODE has a presence at national mathematics meetings. Search for SIMIODE at Joint Math Meeting 2019, Baltimore MD USA in the program to find all of our engagements including panels, talks, poster session, workshop, AMS Special sessions, and informal gathering on SCUDEM. We are currently seeking local site host coordinators for SCUDEM IV 2019 . SCUDEM–SIMIODE Challenge Using Differential Equations Modeling is a chance for teams of three students (undergraduate and high school) to select one of three problems for modeling (physics/engineering, chemistry/life science, or social science). Teams work on their problem at home school for a week and then come together at a local site (your school perhaps?) to share their results for meaningful and immediate feedback and awards. SCUDEM IV 2019 takes place on Challenge Saturday, 9 November 2019, at sites around the world. We invite you to be one of these local sites.
Visit SCUDEM site and see results from previous events – all problems, all student submissions, all MathBowls (questions and answers!), and all Faculty Development programs. Then join us in supporting student growth in modeling with differential equations. Be sure to enjoy videos of students and faculty sharing their enthusiasm for SCUDEM. Also see our local site host coordinator Guide with complete details. egistration Rfor SCUDEM IV 2019 runs 1 September 2019 through 25 October 2019, but we are asking you to sign up to be local site host coordinator now.
SIMIODE is hosting SCUDEM Gathering and Reunion, 7:00-8:30 PM, Friday, 18 January 2019, Douglas Room, Hilton Hotel, Baltimore MD, at the JMM 2019, where you can come and learn more about SCUDEM and meet folks who have participated. Join us!! If you have questions please contact us at Director@simiode.org. Thank you.
