Using projects in mathematics and engineering mathematics courses designedto stimulate learningAbstractDuring the fall of 2008, an engineering mathematics course was developed at ________________ __ ________________ to incorporate lessons in multivariable calculus anddifferential equations. The goal was to focus on topics with direct applicability in ensuingengineering courses, adding logical components, like units and dimensional analysis, tyingmathematics and engineering together. The course added more of an engineering appeal to thetraditional multivariable calculus and differential equations material with the use of engineering-based homework problems, test questions, and projects. The projects typically tackle problemsin mechanics, electrical systems, population dynamics, optimizations, etc. designed to addressthe major focal areas of the course. This paper includes projects that tackle first-order ordinarydifferential equations (ODEs), second order ODEs, and multivariable calculus.
