Model Mysteries: An Exploration of Vampires, Zombies, and Other Fantastic Scenarios to Make the World a Better Place
Author(s): Anne LaVigne, & Lees Stuntz Subject: Cross-Curricular
  This book contains six main chapters, each with a new mystery to solve. Each chapter has a number of similar stories to try, depending on your interest. The modeling activities are intended for students from ages 10 to 110. In other words, if you’re interested in thinking about how to solve mysteries and like the idea of creating computer models and applying them to real-world problems, this book is for you. You can use it independently as a student, work with a group of students, or if you’re a teacher, share it with interested students to complete a guided or independent study project. In addition to the main chapters, Chapter 7 provides an extension to build additional capacity in modeling, and Chapter 8 includes next steps, additional resources, and information about modeling software. You can also reference the appendices for details about completing the chapter mysteries.
 
Modeling Dynamic Systems Section 10
Author(s): Diana Fisher Subject: System Dynamics
  There are several characteristics of complex systems that can be discussed with students during these lessons. The fictitious city seems to face a dilemma; the tanning industry provides needed jobs in the present, but water pollution can cause serious det

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 7
Author(s): Diana Fisher Subject: System Dynamics
  The dynamics of epidemics can be used to impart an intuitive understanding of what it means to say a policy has "high leverage." Students can be tasked with conducting policy analysis to determine the leverage points in preventing an infectious illness fr

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 Your Future
Author(s): Bob Allnutt, J. Harvester, & J. Miller Subject: Cross-Curricular
  From CC-STADUS. A STELLA Model for use in the classroom; explores education-income dynamics.

Complex Systems Connection: Short/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. This also applies to choosing to spend time on education early in life for the opportunity to earn a higher income later. This simulation helps students explore the long-range implications of choices they make now.

Models For Use with At-Risk Students
Author(s): Ron Zaraza Subject: Cross-Curricular
  From CC-STADUS. Six models, accompanied by student work packets, which cover a variety of topics that are either difficult for many students to grasp, or are not usually taught to students identified as At-Risk. The six models are: Basic Coordinate Graphing; The Bathtub: Adventures in Linear Graphs; Changing Slopes; Parabolic Graphs; Exploring Feedback: Reservoir Control; and Population Growth and Renewable Resources. Not designed exclusively for use with identified At-Risk students.

Oscillations 1 Background Information on Simulation Created for Lesson 1: Springs Everywhere: Exploring Spring-Mass Dynamics
Author(s): Anne LaVigne, Jennifer Andersen, & in collaboration with the CLE Subject: Cross-Curricular
  This lesson is a precursor to the Oscillation curriculum created for the Complex Systems Project. Experimenting with a virtual spring will help students gain an intuitive understanding for why a spring oscillates. This knowledge will be reinforced in other lessons in this series.

Complex Systems Connection: Cause within System. Five interdisciplinary areas are covered in a series of lessons, utilizing a family of models that all generate oscillation. Oscillation in real-world systems is often considered problematic rather than a consequence of system structure. This progression of lessons will help students understand that undesirable behavior can be a consequence of system structure and not a result of outside, uncontrollable influences. In other words, a system that oscillates does so because it has an inherent tendency to do so.
