Everyday Behavior Over Time Graphs.
Author(s): Gene Stamel, & Debra Lyneis Subject: Cross-Curricular
  This paper gives general suggestions and specific lessons for using behavior over time graphs in language arts, math, social studies, and science. After an introduction and a little bit of practice, students become skilled at using the graphs to both understand patterns of change and express their ideas about them.
Epidemics Game Packet
Author(s): Will Glass Subject: Cross-Curricular
  From Catalina Foothills School District. This packet includes a description of a simple game to be played in a classroom or with other groups of people as well as follow up exercises. Includes: a) Teaching System Dynamics: Looking at Epidemics (William Glass). Material for teaching system dynamics concepts through a game based on the spread of an epidemic. It includes models, exercises for students, and teacher guidelines. Requires a Macintosh computer and STELLA software if the entire packet is used. b) The Epidemic Game -- Observations (William Glass). A supplemental description of using the Epidemics game in the classroom.

Complex Systems Connection: Separate Cause and Effect. For some illness/disease, symptoms appear long after initial infection. Sometimes people travel great distance while infected because they are unaware of the infection. Medical "detectives" faced with an epidemic must understand how the infection spreads and how quickly. Delays in the system make this more difficult.

Effective Use of Simulations in the Classroom
Author(s): (Martha) Jane Dunkel Chilcott Subject: Implementation
  From Catalina Foothills School District. This paper provides information that will help teachers understand what a simulation is as well as when and why to use one. Both system dynamics simulations and role-playing simulations are explained and related to
Dynamic Models for Learning and Exploration in Physics: The Vertical Throw
Author(s): Albert L. Powers Subject: Science
  An interactive computer model intended for use in an introductory physics program. For use when first introducing the concepts of motion, illustrates behavior of a ball thrown upward. Model can be constructed by beginning physics students also new to the

Dynamic Models for Instruction and Exploration in Chemistry Packet
Author(s): Albert Powers Subject: Science
  A collection of interactive computer models intended for use in introductory chemistry programs. Each model clarifies fundamental chemical concepts and encourages their exploration by simulating the dynamic behavior of carefully selected systems. Includes

Dollars and Sense Lesson 2
Author(s): Jeff Potash, & John Heinbokel Subject: Cross-Curricular
  Lesson 2 from "Dollars and Sense: Stay in the Black: Saving and Spending," a Personal Finance Curriculum. In developing an understanding of how the pieces of our economic system work together, students should start with a deepened understanding of their own finances. This set of lessons focuses on core saving and spending systems that shape the outcomes of personal financial decisions. Future modules will link these saving and spending concepts with other important elements of personal finance (investment, credit, debt, and human capital).

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.

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.
Deceleration of the Earth
Author(s): Leisa Hall, Kristy Stotler, & Sunmi Yi Subject: Student Work
  A 1999 SyMBowl finalist paper. This paper discusses a model developed to demonstrate how the gravitational pull of the moon affects the deceleration of the earth.

Complex Systems Connection: Separate Cause and Effect. The earth is decelerating, but why? This example

Cooling Cup Packet
Author(s): Celeste Chung, & Albert Powers Subject: Science
  The original paper by Celeste Chung and a follow-up by Albert Powers. Includes: a) A Cooling Cup Of Coffee (Celeste V. Chung). A simple model describing the dynamics of a cooling cup of coffee as illustrative of constant outflow and negative feedback. b)

Consider The Gypsy Moth: An Example of System Dynamics for Carlisle
Author(s): Debra Lyneis Subject: Implementation
  An explanation of how system dynamics would "look" and work in a curriculum, using the gypsy moth caterpillar as a concrete example of its application in a science curriculum. A simple presentation which clearly demonstrates how to start using and underst
