A Systems View of Growing and Developing for Young Children
Author(s): Greg Reid Subject: Science
  From Catalina Foothills School District. Through the use of BOTGs, students will understand that body size and skill mastery is usually dependent upon age. In addition, they will discuss practices that will help develop their physical and learning skills.

Comments on Future of K-12 Education (D-4900-1)
Author(s): Jay Forrester Subject: System Dynamics
  There is a fundamentally different kind of pre-college education that the author, along with many others, has been pioneering for more than twenty years. The demonstration phase is now completed and it is time to launch a major implementation program to e

Deceleration of the Earth
Author(s): Leisa Hall, Kristy Stotler, & Sunmi Yi Subject: Student Work
  A 1999 SyMBowl finalist paper. This paper discusses a model developed to demonstrate how the gravitational pull of the moon affects the deceleration of the earth.

Complex Systems Connection: Separate Cause and Effect. The earth is decelerating, but why? This example

Effective Use of Simulations in the Classroom
Author(s): (Martha) Jane Dunkel Chilcott Subject: Implementation
  From Catalina Foothills School District. This paper provides information that will help teachers understand what a simulation is as well as when and why to use one. Both system dynamics simulations and role-playing simulations are explained and related to

Epidemics Game Packet
Author(s): Will Glass Subject: Cross-Curricular
  From Catalina Foothills School District. This packet includes a description of a simple game to be played in a classroom or with other groups of people as well as follow up exercises. Includes: a) Teaching System Dynamics: Looking at Epidemics (William Glass). Material for teaching system dynamics concepts through a game based on the spread of an epidemic. It includes models, exercises for students, and teacher guidelines. Requires a Macintosh computer and STELLA software if the entire packet is used. b) The Epidemic Game -- Observations (William Glass). A supplemental description of using the Epidemics game in the classroom.

Complex Systems Connection: Separate Cause and Effect. For some illness/disease, symptoms appear long after initial infection. Sometimes people travel great distance while infected because they are unaware of the infection. Medical "detectives" faced with an epidemic must understand how the infection spreads and how quickly. Delays in the system make this more difficult.

History and Biology of Smallpox: A General Introduction to the Epidemic Spread of Disease
Author(s): John Heinbokel, & Jeff Potash Subject: Cross-Curricular
  This series of case-studies developed by the Waters Center for System Dynamics examines the dynamics and impacts of such epidemics primarily through the lens of one specific disease --smallpox.

Complex Systems Connection: Separate Cause and Effect. For some illness/disease, symptoms appear long after initial infection. Sometimes people travel great distance while infected because they are unaware of the infection. Medical "detectives" faced with an epidemic must understand how the infection spreads and how quickly. Delays in the system make this more difficult.

How Does a Galaxy Evolve?
Author(s): Carl Anderson, & Steven Cottingham Subject: Student Work
  A 1999 SyMBowl finalist paper. This paper discusses a model developed to demonstrate what happens in a galaxy as it goes into stars and eventually into white dwarfs, black holes, and neutron stars.

Complex Systems Connection: Separate Cause and Effect. A model of how
