As the students in my calculus course finish up spring quarter, I am having
them do a modeling application using vector calculus. While I have several
interesting topics which interest the engineering major, I still am looking
for applications of one-variable vector calculus in the medical and life
sciences.
The closest project I've found is modeling the behavior of charged ions in a
mass-spectrometer. This allows the computation of T-N-B and then curvature.
I looking for possible ideas and topics suitable for mathematical modeling
using vector calculus.
Thank you for your time and ideas as I have used topics off of this board at
other times to generate excitement in mathematics with students.
