**Abstract **:

Mathematicians have been using mathematics to model and analyze natural/physical/biological phenomena. One classical way for application of mathematics is through differential equations. In this talk, I will briefly introduce some applications of differential equations focusing especially on volcano eruption and disease spreading. Targeted audiences are people with high school level mathematics.
