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 system itself. They will learn why some policies have more leverage than others, and why those policies are often the most difficult to implement correctly in real life.

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 national boundaries. The lessons of this section can also be used in conjunction with the Oscillations curriculum, particularly the lesson on commodity cycles, to illustate that the cause of a problem is within the system.

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.
Modern Electronics: Teaching Economics to High School Students with a System Dynamics Simulator
Author(s): Gary B. Hirsch Subject: Social Studies
  Teaching economics with a simulator can actively engage students and help them learn more effectively. This paper describes a simulator that teaches students economics in terms of a familiar economic institution, the retail store. The simulator casts the

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.
Author(s): Jeff Potash, & John Heinbokel Subject: Social Studies
  This is the first of three articles that explores building system dynamics tools and perspectives into the K-12 social studies curricula. This article begins with a "big picture" perspective in identifying goals that are shared by the two fields and that
Author(s): Jeff Potash, & John Heinbokel Subject: Social Studies
  This second article poses the question, "How can we effectively use system dynamics to build social studies curricula to meet those two goals?" These ideas have evolved over years of working with students, most recently with Rob Skiff within the middle-
Notes on history and future of system dynamics in K-12 education (D-4897)
Author(s): Jay W. Forrester Subject: System Dynamics
  With these notes, Jay Forrester hopes to encourage discussion about participating in a daring, difficult, but highly promising kind of K-12 education that is radically different from what is now common.
Packaged Simulators and Simulation-Based Learning Environments: An Alternative to Model-Building That Can Expand the Audience for System Dynamics
Author(s): Gary B. Hirsch Subject: Cross-Curricular
  Requiring people to build models may limit the audience for system dynamics. Packaged Simulators and Simulation-Based Learning Environments are an alternative that can convey an essenial understanding of sysems without requiring prerequisite skills.
Pre-College Student Understanding of Accumulations: An Experiment at a WPI Summer Workshop for Students
Author(s): Diana Fisher, Chris DiCarlo, Alan Ticotsky, & Rob Quaden Subject: System Dynamics
  This paper presents the results of a pre- and post-test assessment given to 18 students ages 14 to 17 years who participated in a WPI Sustainability Workshop in the summer of 2014, where systems thinking and system dynamics modeling were the primary tools used to study environmental issues. The pre- and post-test were designed to assess the students' ability to determine simple dynamic behavior of phenomenon when the rate of change of the phenomenon was given in text, pictorial, or graphical form. The assessment determined that students have a reasonably robust intuitive ability to determine simple dynamic behavior from text and pictorial descriptions but not from graphical descriptions.
