A Skeptic's Guide to Computer Models (D-4101-1)
Author(s): John D. Sterman Subject: System Dynamics
  From SDEP. A detailed description of computer modeling and of the advantages and limitations of several types of models, this paper examines some modeling techniques, focusing on their assumptions and possible implications of their application in foresigh

A System Dynamics Approach to Rabbits (S-shaped growth) (D-4286)
Author(s): Terri Duhon Subject: System Dynamics
  From SDEP. This paper studies S-shaped growth by examining the behavior of a rabbit population. Shows and explains a complete system dynamics model constructed for STELLA.

Complex Systems Connection: Cause within System. This paper can be used in conjunction with the
 
A Systems View of Natural Processes: Teaching Physics the System Dynamics Way
Author(s): Hans Fuchs Subject: Science
  The discussion of an approach to a systems form of physics instruction, the Continuum Physics Paradigm.
  PDF
An Introduction to Feedback (D-4691)
Author(s): Leslie Martin Subject: System Dynamics
  From SDEP. Feedback is the process through which a signal travels through a chain of causal relations to re-affect itself. This paper will reinforce the general theory of feedback with multiple different examples in the form of exercises, which will invol

Assessing the Effectiveness of Systems-Oriented Instruction for Preparing Students to Understand Complexity
Author(s): Richard Randall Plate Subject: Research
  Dissertation for Ph.D. This research presents systems-oriented instruction as a promising pedagogical tool for preparing students to understand complex social and ecological systems. A methodology is presented using cognitive mapping to evaluate how systems-oriented instruction affects the way students learn about complex systems.

Behind Closed Gates - Paper from the 2015 System Dynamics Conference
Author(s): Anne LaVigne, & Lees Stuntz Subject: Cross-Curricular
  The Stanford Prison Experiment (SPE), conducted at Stanford University by Philip Zimbardo in 1971 is a powerful example of seeing how people respond in highly stressful situations in which one individual or group has power over another. Although this type of experiment no longer meets the ethical standards for human study, the learning that has resulted impacts current understanding and, in some cases, decisions about how to structure systems, such as penal institutions.

Bringing System Dynamics to a School Near You: Suggestions for Introducing and Sustaining System Dynamics in K-12 Education.
Author(s): Debra Lyneis Subject: Implementation
  Presented at the 2000 International System Dynamics Society Conference in Bergen, Norway, this paper explains how system dynamics is introduced and sustained in schools, outlining some of the many generous contributions that have made the early growth of K-12 system dynamics possible, and giving readers many resources and practical suggestions for how they can participate, too. Updated in 2013 by the Creative Learning Exchange.

Building Slightly More Complex Models: Calculators vs. STELLA
Author(s): Diana M. Fisher Subject: Research
  If students are to develop the potential to effectively manage ubiquitous complex systems, it is becoming increasing important to develop systems thinking concepts and model building skills formally at the pre-college level. This paper describes an experiment conducted in two secondary school classrooms in the Pacific northwestern United States to determine the importance of access to a relatively new modeling tool for students to enable them to successfully create and analyze simple models that are slight extensions of traditional models, as compared with using graphing calculators to build and analyze the same extended model scenarios.

Bumbles and Woofs: A Population Model
Author(s): Rachel Henry Subject: Cross-Curricular
  This high school math lesson progresses from a simple population model to a predator-prey model with an understandable and explicit sequence. The teacher used Vensim simulation software for the class, but the lesson could easily be modified for other simulation software such as Stella and Splash!

Can Education Reform Get in the Way of Reforming Education? A Simulator for Exploring Reform Strategies
Author(s): Gary B. Hirsch Subject: Implementation
  This paper presents a simulator that school systems can use to understand the dynamics of education reform and, at an aggregate level, examine different strategies for implementing reform. It is based on a System Dynamics simulation model that represents key causal relationships among elements of reform and a system's ongoing operations. The simulator is a framework for helping school systems identify unanticipated and potentially damaging consequences of reform efforts. It can also help them determine combinations of reforms that work well together and can be mutually supportive. In addition, the simulator can help school systems and their constituencies understand the value of System Dynamics and Systems Thinking by applying them to issues of critical importance.
