Deceleration of the Earth
Author(s): Leisa Hall, Kristy Stotler, & Sunmi Yi Subject: Student Work
  A 1999 SyMBowl finalist paper. This paper discusses a model developed to demonstrate how the gravitational pull of the moon affects the deceleration of the earth.

Complex Systems Connection: Separate Cause and Effect. The earth is decelerating, but why? This example

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) Cooling Cup of Coffee II. (Albert Powers). A follow-up to Celeste Chung's paper "A Cooling Cup of Coffee," giving additional information and input into the dynamics involved.

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

CO2018_Teaching STEM with Systems Tools
Author(s): Chris DiCarlo, Ashley Young, Katharine Hinkle, & Rachel Henry Subject: Conference
  In this workshop, participants will see examples of systems tools used to teach STEM concepts. We will examine some of the reinforcing and balancing loops that regulate human body systems, discuss how stock-flow models can be used in Physics and Mathematics, and look at challenging problems like coastal erosion through the lens of a systems thinker. After a presentation of the tools, participants will have time to meet with the presenters and explore some of their own ideas for use in their classes. 
 
Bumbles and Woofs: A Population Model
Author(s): Rachel Henry Subject: Cross-Curricular
  This high school math lesson progresses from a simple population model to a predator-prey model with an understandable and explicit sequence. The teacher used Vensim simulation software for the class, but the lesson could easily be modified for other simulation software such as Stella and Splash!

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

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 creating system dynamic models for his AP Biology, Anatomy and Physiology, and Biology students to investigate biological systems.

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.

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!

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.) http://static.clexchange.org/ftp/newsletter/CLEx22.1.pdf. 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)
