Glacier Flow Model and Introduction to Monte Carlo Methods
Dan Morgan, Vanderbilt University
The goal of this assignment is for students to recognize that adding some randomization and "noise" to a model yields different results each time we run the model, and we can pull some useful statistics ...
Impacts of anthropogenic sound on marine mammals
Andrew Fischer, university of tasmania
Marine mammals rely on sound for their daily existence. Therefore, the introduction of anthropogenic noise in the marine environment can have a profound impact on their behavior. Listening to sounds in the ocean is ...

Using Regression Models to make Predictions
Michelle Isenhour, Naval Postgraduate School
This activity introduces students to prediction and confidence intervals for a simple linear regression model using a MATLAB Live Script. To draw a connection to confidence intervals for an unknown population mean, ...
Kinetics of Herbicide Photodegradation
Kristi Closser, California State University-Fresno
This lab activity is designed to connect student's knowledge of reaction rates to actual data and an unfamiliar system (photodegradation of phenylurea herbicides in the presence of various catalysts). Students ...

Parametrization and Visualization of Quadric Surfaces
Sayonita Ghosh Hajra, California State University-Sacramento
This activity is exploratory and collaborative MATLAB activity. Students will explore and visualize graphs of quadric surfaces. In this activity, students will parametrize equations of surfaces and explore families ...
Introduction to MATLAB for Oceanographic Data
Anna Pfeiffer-Herbert, Stockton University
This activity introduces students to loading and plotting data in MATLAB. Students explore scalar and vector time series and profile data commonly used in the field of Oceanography using data sets from publicly ...
MATLAB LIGO Analysis
Duncan Carlsmith, University of Wisconsin-Madison
Foundational computational skills for physics students can be developed in an introductory 2-semester survey course for first-year university physics students using physics-data-driven exercises that introduce ...
Transitioning from Excel to MATLAB Diffusion Models
Kendra Lynn, University of Delaware
This activity is part of a larger module that introduces students to two different ways to model chemical diffusion in minerals: 1) 1D diffusion in Excel using finite differences and 2) 1D diffusion in MATLAB using ...
Introduction to hydrologic model calibration
Matin Rahnamay Naeini, University of California-Irvine
In this exercise, we introduce the concept of model calibration for rainfall-runoff models. We specifically employ a synthetic precipitation data as input to the hydrologic model to generate synthetic runoff. The ...
