A System Dynamics Approach to Rabbits (S-shaped growth) (D-4286)
Author(s): Terri Duhon Subject: System Dynamics
  From SDEP. This paper studies S-shaped growth by examining the behavior of a rabbit population. Shows and explains a complete system dynamics model constructed for STELLA.

Complex Systems Connection: Cause within System. This paper can be used in conjunction with the
A Systems View of Growing and Developing for Young Children
Author(s): Greg Reid Subject: Science
  From Catalina Foothills School District. Through the use of BOTGs, students will understand that body size and skill mastery is usually dependent upon age. In addition, they will discuss practices that will help develop their physical and learning skills.
A Systems View of Natural Processes: Teaching Physics the System Dynamics Way
Author(s): Hans Fuchs Subject: Science
  The discussion of an approach to a systems form of physics instruction, the Continuum Physics Paradigm.
Among the Hidden
Author(s): Gail Falewicz Subject: Cross-Curricular
  Gail Falewicz has inherited the Critical Thinking and Reading (CTR) class from Mairead Orpen. (See The Creative Learning Exchange, vol. 22, no. 1, Winter 2013.) As the CTR teacher, Gail teaches every 5th grade student at Innovation Academy Charter School (IACS), a public charter school, in Tyngsboro, MA. This is her summary of the class structure and a report of a unit she taught based on the novel "Among the Hidden" by Margaret Peterson Haddix. (1998, Simon and Schuster, Book One in the "Shadow Children" series)

Bacteria Sandwich - Mini App
Author(s): Anne LaVigne Subject: Cross-Curricular
  Bacteria Sandwich is a free, engaging, easy-to-use app for students and others to explore how exponential growth can occur when temperatures are optimal for the bacteria. Students can change the initial number of bacteria and temperature to see what happens over 12 hours. How can this bacteria be stopped before it creates a very dangerous lunch? Students can change the elements to determine how to keep those lunches safe!
Banzai Barbie! STELLA Model Building and Graph Analysis in Math and Science Using Bungee Jumping
Author(s): Mary Memmott, & Becky Hadden Subject: Cross-Curricular
  Using a STELLA model and then designing an actual bungee jump, students take Barbie bungee jumping.

Complex Systems Connection: Cause within System This lesson presents a fun way to experiment with an oscillating system. It can be used as a precusor to the Oscillations curriculum designed for the Characteristics of Complex Systems project.

Biology Simulations
Author(s): Jon Darkow Subject: Science
  In 2012 Jon Darkow from Seneca East Local Schools in Attica, Ohio, received an educator's scholarship from the Creative Learning Exchange to attend the Systems Thinking and Dynamic Modeling Conference in Wellesley, MA. Since that time, he has been creatin
Building Slightly More Complex Models: Calculators vs. STELLA
Author(s): Diana M. Fisher Subject: Research
  If students are to develop the potential to effectively manage ubiquitous complex systems, it is becoming increasing important to develop systems thinking concepts and model building skills formally at the pre-college level. This paper describes an experi
Consider The Gypsy Moth: An Example of System Dynamics for Carlisle
Author(s): Debra Lyneis Subject: Implementation
  An explanation of how system dynamics would "look" and work in a curriculum, using the gypsy moth caterpillar as a concrete example of its application in a science curriculum. A simple presentation which clearly demonstrates how to start using and underst
Cooling Cup Packet
Author(s): Celeste Chung, & Albert Powers Subject: Science
  The original paper by Celeste Chung and a follow-up by Albert Powers. Includes: a) A Cooling Cup Of Coffee (Celeste V. Chung). A simple model describing the dynamics of a cooling cup of coffee as illustrative of constant outflow and negative feedback. b)
