Oscillations 1A: Fun with Springs
Author(s): Anne LaVigne, Jennifer Anderson, & in collaboration with the CLE Subject: Cross-Curricular
  Students explore a simple spring simulation is see how springs behave, given different characteristics. Students can change the springiness, the resistance, and the amount of push or pull.

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.
