Dollars and Sense II Lesson 7
Author(s): Jeff Potash Subject: Cross-Curricular
  Lesson 7 contains three computer simulations, each intended to challenge students to apply what they have learned in previous lessons to help a desperate individual or couple with a looming financial catastrophe. Though each of the problems presented involves a slightly different concern, they all involve a combination of credit card and loan issues complicated by imbalances relating to spending. Can personal finance issues of these people be salvaged? And if so, at what cost and what trade-offs?

Complex Systems Connection: Short and 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. The lessons in Dollars and Sense II illustrate both immediate and long-term impacts, both beneficial (to savers) and harmful (to debtors) of compound interest on overall financial health

History and Biology of Smallpox: A General Introduction to the Epidemic Spread of Disease
Author(s): John Heinbokel, & Jeff Potash Subject: Cross-Curricular
  This series of case-studies developed by the Waters Center for System Dynamics examines the dynamics and impacts of such epidemics primarily through the lens of one specific disease --smallpox.

Complex Systems Connection: Separate Cause and Effect. For some illness/disease, symptoms appear long after initial infection. Sometimes people travel great distance while infected because they are unaware of the infection. Medical "detectives" faced with an epidemic must understand how the infection spreads and how quickly. Delays in the system make this more difficult.
