Two Loops, Three Loops, or Four Loops: Pedagogic Issues in Explaining Epidemic Dynamics
Author(s): James M. Lyneis, & Debra Lyneis Subject: System Dynamics
  How many feedback loops, and of what type, control the behavior of an epidemic? A search of the literature discovered two-, three-, and four-loop versions of the basic epidemic model in introductory system dynamics materials. How can the same behavio
Understanding Oscillations in Simple Systems
Author(s): Nathaniel J Mass, & Peter M Senge Subject: System Dynamics
  This paper presents some arguments to succcesfully develop insight into simple oscillating systems. The paper analyzes a one-level model for the population growth of rabbits in a closed field to illustrate why a first-order negative-feedback system exhibi
Why System Dynamics?
Author(s): Richard Turnock Subject: Why K12 SD
  From an online blog, this article presents clearly and concisely that the public school paradigms of "what" and "how" lack the "why." System Dynamics enables us to understand WHY systems work the way they do in order to prepare for the future.
Why Use Systems Thinking and System Dynamics in K-12 Education?
Author(s): CLE Subject: Why K12 SD
  A brief answer to the question posed in the title. When ST/SD tools and concepts are used in conjunction with a student-centered approach, schools, students, teachers and communities benefit. As ST/SD is integrated into the culture of classrooms and schools, it creates a positive cycle of engagement and motivation for both students and their teachers.
