Introducing System Dynamics into the Traditional Secondary Curriculum: The CC-STADUS Project's Search for Leverage Points
Author(s): Ron Zaraza, & Diana Fisher Subject: Implementation
  From CC-STADUS. A discussion of the single-subject natural "entry points" for system dynamics—areas where systems ideas and models are natural topics. Examples are given for physics, biology, mathematics, social sciences and literature.

Learning to Connect the Dots: Developing Children's Systems Literacy
Author(s): Linda Booth Sweeney Subject: Why K12 SD
  In this article, educator Linda Booth Sweeney points out that thinking about systems means paying attention to the interrelationships, patterns, and dynamics that surround us, and that children are naturally attuned to this.

Modeling Dynamic Systems Section 6
Author(s): Diana Fisher Subject: System Dynamics
  In the classroom example provided in this section, the author lists many "potential systems problems" that are related to the issue of overpopulation. As an extension exercise, students can be asked to identify ways in which people have attempted to solve

Modeling Dynamic Systems Section 8
Author(s): Diana Fisher Subject: System Dynamics
  Policy analysis gives students an opportunity to learn first-hand that complex systems are rich in feedback. They will experience the frustration of implementing well-meaning interventions, only to have them defeated by the feedback mechanisms of the syst

Modeling Dynamic Systems Section 9
Author(s): Diana Fisher Subject: System Dynamics
  Supply chain dynamics are useful for illustrating the complex system characteristic that cause and effect are often separated by both time and space. Supply chains are often global, with decisions taken today causing impacts into the future and across nat

Modeling Physics: System Dynamics in Physics Education
Author(s): Horst P. Schecker Subject: Science
  System Dynamics modeling helps to shift the focus of physics instruction towards more qualitative learning. Dynamic modeling requires students to analyze a phenomenon and develop the model, whereby they are introduced into the strategy of expert problem-solvers, i.e. to concentrate on a conceptual and semi-quantitative analysis. The modeling system supports the learner both in constructing the model and exploring its physical adequacy through simulation runs. Lead article in Spring 1996 CLExchange newsletter.
