The Mammoth Extinction Game
Author(s): Gene Stamell, A Ticotsky, & R Quaden Subject: Cross-Curricular
  Prepared with the support of the Gordon Stanley Brown Fund. In this interdisciplinary science, math, and social studies lesson, third graders examine how the wooly mammoth became extinct about 11,000 years ago. With a game and a hands-on model they learn about graphing, probability anda exponential decay in math, and they are intorduced to system dynamics modeling as a useful tool for looking at problems.

The Fish Pond Story
Author(s): Malcolm Brooks, & Richard Tu Subject: Cross-Curricular
  The sample game developed by Richard Tu in Taiwan and a simple simulation used in Maine based upon that game.

Complex Systems Connection: Cause within System. 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.
Teenagers with Global Control
Author(s): Teresa F. Hazel, & Timothy Joy Subject: Cross-Curricular
  From CC-STADUS. After reading "Fahrenheit 451", students inherit a nation out of control with respect to its population and resources and have a cyber-century to salvage it. This model hails from "The Rulers" packet, with a few changes in the model and presentation. It begins with a basic population model, and so it works well for inexperienced STELLA users, teachers as well as students. It then expands through three permutations, and so do the curricular possibilities.

Systems Tools in High School: Interdisciplinary Learning in a Science Classroom
Author(s): Alan Ticotsky Subject: Implementation
  A summary of how one teacher teaches across the curriculum. Chris DiCarlo teaches high school classes in several different disciplines at Innovation Academy Charter School (IACS). While technically in the science and math departments, he has taught physic
Succession from Sand Dune to Maritime Forest on a Barrier Island
Author(s): Aili Carlson, & Sarah Clemmitt Subject: Science
  From the Maryland Virtual High School. By building a computer model of a complex dynamic system--the succession form sand dune to maritime forest on a barrier island--the student develops an understanding of the relationships among many contributing varia

Studying The Lorax with Feedback Loops
Author(s): Rob Quaden, & Alan Ticotsky Subject: Cross-Curricular
  Students read "The Lorax," by Dr. Suess, and then develop a connection circle and causal loops to understand and illustrate the themes of the story.

Complex Systems Connection: Separate Cause and Effect, Short and Long Term Conflicts. Short-term focus on making money results in depletion of resource and environmental degradation over time and the collapse of the business. Actions and their detrimental consequences are separated by time.
Students Taking a Systems Approach to Drinking and Driving
Author(s): Stephany Yerger Subject: Social Studies
  From CC-STADUS. A member of the class of 1999 at La Salle High School reports on the project she and classmates undertook to create a tool for hands-on alcohol education using STELLA. Model included.

Stream Assimilation Capacity for Waste Material
Author(s): Tran Pham Subject: Science
  From the Maryland Virtual High School. The unit objective is to develop a model which will simulate the biodegradable process of man-made waste released into a stream. Students can design, experiment, collect data, build a model, evaluate the model, and r
