The Systems Thinking Playbook Exercise 6: Warped Juggle
Author(s): Linda Booth Sweeney, & Dennis Meadows Subject: Cross-Curricular
  Participants in this group activity attempt to improve performance as they toss an object among individuals in a particular order.

Complex Systems Connection: Cause within System, Incorrect High-Leverage Policies. Participants attempt to improve performance by changing the structure of the system, but the action is only effective up to a point. Participants must change a mental model about the rules in order to create significant change in the system. Available from Chelsea Green Publishers.

Using Dynamic Simulation to Teach Physics in a Real-World Context
Author(s): Gary B. Hirsch Subject: Science
  This paper describes a family of simulators that have been developed to teach several topics in physics, including circular motion, collisions, energy storage, and heat flow. These simulators provide students with laboratories for experimenting with the phenomena in the context of real world situations such as driving, home energy conservation, and sports. The paper contrasts dynamic simulation and traditional approaches to teaching physics. It also discusses the value of simulators with "user friendly" interfaces, compared to using System Dynamics models alone. The paper describes how each phenomenon was modeled and presents interfaces for each simulator. Note: The simulator works only with Windows.

Complex Systems Connection: Incorrect High-Leverage Policies. Physical systems can be feedback-rich, complex systems, in the same manner as social systems. They can provide counterintuitive responses to leverage points. In these simulations, students can experience some of the consequences of pushing high-leverage policies in the wrong direction.
