Dollars and Sense II Lesson 5
Author(s): Jeff Potash Subject: Cross-Curricular
  Building on the introduction to credit card use in Lesson 3, Lesson 5 contains two computer hands-on simulations that are designed to help students extend their understanding of real world, ongoing credit card use and its relationship to one’s overall personal finances. The simulations challenge students to both create and then address personal scenarios of interest while further managing ongoing credit card use in the larger context of saving, spending, and savings goals.

Complex Systems Connection: Short and 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. The lessons in Dollars and Sense II illustrate both immediate and long-term impacts, both beneficial (to savers) and harmful (to debtors) of compound interest on overall financial health.

Dollars and Sense II Lesson 3
Author(s): Jeff Potash Subject: Cross-Curricular
  Lesson 3 contains two computer “hands-on” simulations designed to introduce students to the basics of how credit card interest charges work. In this lesson students will experience how the costs of credit card borrowing can quickly escalate, sometimes beyond their control!

Dollars and Sense II Lesson 2
Author(s): Jeff Potash Subject: Cross-Curricular
  The second lesson from "Dollars and Sense II: Our Interest in Interest, Managing Savings and Debt," "How Can I Maximize Savings While Spending?" contains 5 computer hands-on simulations designed to let students investigate the relative importance of careful saving and compound interest.

Dollars and Sense II Lesson 1
Author(s): Jeff Potash Subject: Cross-Curricular
  "Can Compound Interest Work for Me?" is the title of this first lesson from "Dollars and Sense II: Our Interest in Interest, Managing Savings and Debt." This lesson contains 3 hands-on and progressively challenging simulations designed to let students explore and experience the system of compounding interest.

Deeper Learning and the Common Core
Author(s): Sheri Marlin Subject: Cross-Curricular
  Subtitle: Teachers learning together for student success with Systems Thinking: A thoughtful approach to the Common Core. This booklet contains lesson plans in Early Reading, Middle School Math, and High School Non-fiction Texts.

Complex Systems Connection: Incorrect High-Leverage Policies/Short and Long Term Conflicts: Financial Planning Life Scenarios-Few things are as relevant to high school students as how they spend their money. The Robinsons and the Meltons are two families that earn the same income, live in the same neighborhood, are of the same age, and have two children each. Yet the Robinsons are six times wealthier than the Meltons. Students use systems thinking tools to analyze these real-life scenarios to determine key principles to personal wealth.

CO2018_Teaching STEM with Systems Tools
Author(s): Chris DiCarlo, Ashley Young, Katharine Hinkle, & Rachel Henry Subject: Conference
  In this workshop, participants will see examples of systems tools used to teach STEM concepts. We will examine some of the reinforcing and balancing loops that regulate human body systems, discuss how stock-flow models can be used in Physics and Mathematics, and look at challenging problems like coastal erosion through the lens of a systems thinker. After a presentation of the tools, participants will have time to meet with the presenters and explore some of their own ideas for use in their classes. 
 
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!

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 experi
