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.

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 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 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 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 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 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.

Mosquito Nets for Fishing
Author(s): George Richardson Subject: Cross-Curricular
  Mosquito nets are widely considered an effective ways to stop the spread of malaria. But countless fishermen using their mosquito nets to catch fish instead. George Richardson thought of looking at the issues through the vantage point of the various stake-holders. Usinsg tools of system dynamics to look at the issue, this is a series of maps that George used in his thinking.
 
Models For Use with At-Risk Students
Author(s): Ron Zaraza Subject: Cross-Curricular
  From CC-STADUS. Six models, accompanied by student work packets, which cover a variety of topics that are either difficult for many students to grasp, or are not usually taught to students identified as At-Risk. The six models are: Basic Coordinate Graphing; The Bathtub: Adventures in Linear Graphs; Changing Slopes; Parabolic Graphs; Exploring Feedback: Reservoir Control; and Population Growth and Renewable Resources. Not designed exclusively for use with identified At-Risk students.

Modeling Your Future
Author(s): Bob Allnutt, J. Harvester, & J. Miller Subject: Cross-Curricular
  From CC-STADUS. A STELLA Model for use in the classroom; explores education-income dynamics.

Complex Systems Connection: Short/Long Term Conflicts. Managing money, in personal finances or in running a business, often involves setting both short-term and long-term goals. Sometimes goals are in conflict between these timeframes, such as spending now versus saving/investing for future financial well-being. This also applies to choosing to spend time on education early in life for the opportunity to earn a higher income later. This simulation helps students explore the long-range implications of choices they make now.
