Friendship Game
Author(s): Peg Clemans Subject: Personal Growth and Development
  From Catalina Foothills School District. In this game, students are introduced to the concept of reinforcing relationships, as well as the idea that practicing their friendship skills could not only lead to a friendship, but could also make more friendshi

Oscillations 1 Background Information on Simulation Created for Lesson 1: Springs Everywhere: Exploring Spring-Mass Dynamics
Author(s): Anne LaVigne, Jennifer Andersen, & in collaboration with the CLE Subject: Cross-Curricular
  This lesson is a precursor to the Oscillation curriculum created for the Complex Systems Project. Experimenting with a virtual spring will help students gain an intuitive understanding for why a spring oscillates. This knowledge will be reinforced in other lessons in this series.

Complex Systems Connection: Cause within System. Five interdisciplinary areas are covered in a series of lessons, utilizing a family of models that all generate oscillation. Oscillation in real-world systems is often considered problematic rather than a consequence of system structure. This progression of lessons will help students understand that undesirable behavior can be a consequence of system structure and not a result of outside, uncontrollable influences. In other words, a system that oscillates does so because it has an inherent tendency to do so.

Oscillations 1A: Fun with Springs
Author(s): Anne LaVigne, Jennifer Anderson, & in collaboration with the CLE Subject: Cross-Curricular
  Students explore a simple spring simulation is see how springs behave, given different characteristics. Students can change the springiness, the resistance, and the amount of push or pull.

Oscillations 1B Exploring Springs: A Little Bounce in the World
Author(s): Anne LaVigne, Jennifer Andersen, & in collaboration with the CLE Subject: Cross-Curricular
  Students explore a simple spring simulation to see how springs behave, given different characteristics. Students can change the springiness, the resistance, a mass at the end of the spring, and the amount of push or pull.

Oscillations 1C Springs Everywhere: Exploring Spring-Mass Dynamics
Author(s): Anne LaVigne, Jennifer Andersen, & in collaboration with the CLE Subject: Cross-Curricular
  The spring simulation allows students to experiment with a virtual spring-mass system. They can change settings, run the simulation, and compare results. The default simulation behavior is equilibrium, as the spring is initially at rest. By changing the settings, a variety of oscillatory behaviors are generated. This model is intended as an introduction for this series of oscillatory models, although it also aligns with specific math and science curricular standards.

Oscillations 2 Background Information on Simulation Created for Lesson 2: Romeo and Juliet: In Rapturous Oscillation?
Author(s): Jennifer Andersen, Anne LaVigne, & in collaboration with the CLE Subject: Cross-Curricular
  The model used in this lesson is structurally similar to the spring-mass simulation (Lesson 1) and is intended to follow it. It challenges students to apply what they have learned about springs to intangible subject matter. For example, “resistance” from the spring simulation gets recast as “fatigue” to show what happens when one party in a relationship gets tired of the up-and-down dynamic. Students should recognize that their own personal relationships include themselves as part of the system; therefore, they do have the opportunity to influence an unwanted dynamic.

Oscillations 2A Playground Ups and Downs
Author(s): Anne LaVigne, Jennifer Andersen, & in collaboration with the CLE Subject: Cross-Curricular
  Students explore a simulation showing how playing with particular friends might change over time. Students can change elements such as how much they want to play with friends and how quickly they get tired of playing with the same person.

Oscillations 2B Romeo and Juliet: Parallel Universe
Author(s): Anne LaVigne, Jennifer Andersen, & in collaboration with the CLE Subject: Cross-Curricular
  Students use a simple simulation to explore "what if" questions relating to characters. They can change how characters behave to consider whether a story might have emerged differently. Note that students do not need to read the play, The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet, in order to explore the simulation.
