We will demonstrate prototype software (Mac OS X, Linux Windows) that has the capability of importing a digital picture (or frames of a video clip) of some physical phenomenon and using it to generate a set of data for modeling purposes. Our goal is to make it easier for teachers to do real applied mathematics in the classroom and to make mathematics more enjoyable for the first and secondyear mathematics students.
