### differential equations model course

by Rick Cornez -
I am wondering if anyone knows of the status of the model course for diff eq that is included in the WEbWork maa page that lists sets of model courses. It mentions you can download problem sets under the course heading but diff eq seems to be lacking that option. Is this soon to come or am I missing some hidden corner of problem files. I'm pretty new to webwork. Thanks

Hi Rick,

The model course isn't quite finished, but I've made an archive of the set definitions files and attached it here. Just upload it to your webwork course and then go to the Homework Sets Editor to import the sets.

By the way, if you want to build it up and add to the model course we would certainly welcome any contributions!

Hope this helps!

All of the models currently listed on the wiki are works in progress. This summer we will be offering through the MAA a PREP workshop that focuses on refining the list of models and to hopefully get some of these (perhaps DE) into something that we can really recommend. You might want to consider signing up for the course at http://www.maa.org/prep/2013/courses_ww.html .

Hi everyone,

These model courses are news to me. How do instructors get a hold of the set definition files for the sets in these courses?

Lars.

For some of the courses, zipped files are available for download somewhere on the wiki. For others you will need to ask (such as for DE). This has not been easy yet and is on the current list of projects.

Eventually the hope is to add an option to the Library Browser (or something similar) so that users can pick a model from a drop-down list and the whole course get propagated into the users course. Anyone who wants to help with that effort is appreciated!

Yesterday I just created a webwork-model-course-library on github, but it doesn't have anything in it yet.

I can put archives of all of the existing model courses up there. Many of them are not finished yet, but they might be helpful to get people started.

But, everyone has to promise that they will help improve them.
