The Shape of Change
Author(s): Rob Quaden, Alan Ticotsky, & Debra Lyneis Subject: Cross-Curricular
  Eleven hands-on lessons/activities that promote critical thinking, teamwork and dialogue.

Complex Systems Connection: Some lessons in the Shape of Change series can be used to illustrate specific characteristics of complex systems. Please see individual lessons for more information.

The Shape of Change: Stocks and Flows
Author(s): Rob Quaden, Alan Ticotsky, & Debra Lyneis Subject: Cross-Curricular
  This book builds on lessons developed in "The Shape of Change," Students learn why things change, using stock/flow diagrams as a tool to give them a way to visually represent and examine the causes of change.

The Tree Game for Primary Students (Grades K-3)
Author(s): Anne LaVigne, & Lindsey Weaver Subject: Cross-Curricular
  Students explore what happens to the number of trees in a forest over time as a forester plants and a lumberjack harvests a certain number of trees each year. While playing the game, the class tracks the number of trees over time. Students can see trends and discuss what’s happening to the forest and why, connecting it to real-world needs and desires for lumber and paper products. They can then run and discuss a second scenario that shows how that trend can be reversed.

Complex Systems Connection: Cause within System, Short and Long Term Conflicts. People sometimes decide to use natural resources to meet present goals (satisfy customers, increase profits) and ignore long-term consequences. In systems where renewable resources are used up, people often blame others. Decisions to use the resource faster than it can be replenished is the real cause, however.

Thinking about Drinking: What are the Effects of Drinking Alcohol
Author(s): Jeff Potash Subject: Cross-Curricular
  The purpose of this simulation is to increase awareness of potential effects of alcohol on the body over a 12-hour period. The simulation provides students and adults an opportunity to see what happens over time after the consumption of alcohol.

Thinking Systemically about Common Core Mathematical Practice Standards:
Author(s): Jeff Potash Subject: Implementation
  As a starting point for discussion, the author proposes a reinforcing feedback loop to answer the question, "Can the mathematics standards be organized to support systems thinking and learning?"

Three Things to Remember About Behavior-over-Time Graphs
Author(s): Alan Ticotsky Subject: Cross-Curricular
  BOTGs are designed to represent our thinking. All BOTG graphs allow our 'mental models' to take a visual form so we can share them, or analyze them ourselves. Alan Ticotsky presents three insights which will help utilize BOTGs effectively.

Using Computer Models To Apply Concepts In Math (D-4326-1)
Author(s): Tad T. Sudnick Subject: Math
  This paper advocates applying math knowledge in a high school science classroom on the premise that science and math should be taught together and that computer modeling is an extremely effective means of doing so.
