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
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)

An Introduction to Linear Models: Using STELLA to Solve Word Problems
Author(s): Rob Quaden, Alan Ticotsky, & Deb Lyneis Subject: Math
  Prepared with the support of the Gordon Stanley Brown Fund. In this introductory system dynamics modeling lesson, students learn to build simple linear models using STELLA software. The lesson can be integrated into an eighth grade Algebra I curriculum. I

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.

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
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. 
Deeper Learning and the Common Core
Author(s): Sheri Marlin Subject: Cross-Curricular
  Subtitle: Teachers learning together for student success with Systems Thinking: A thoughtful approach to the Common Core. This booklet contains lesson plans in Early Reading, Middle School Math, and High School Non-fiction Texts.

Complex Systems Connection: Incorrect High-Leverage Policies/Short and Long Term Conflicts: Financial Planning Life Scenarios-Few things are as relevant to high school students as how they spend their money. The Robinsons and the Meltons are two families that earn the same income, live in the same neighborhood, are of the same age, and have two children each. Yet the Robinsons are six times wealthier than the Meltons. Students use systems thinking tools to analyze these real-life scenarios to determine key principles to personal wealth.
Designing a Hands-On Approach to Calculus (D-4317)
Author(s): William Glass Subject: Math
  A hands-on computer-oriented calculus curriculum. Based on a course, "Calculus Can Be Fun," using physical and computer experimentation, group work, discussion and writing as tools for instruction.
Dollars and Sense II Lesson 1
Author(s): Jeff Potash Subject: Cross-Curricular
  "Can Compound Interest Work for Me?" is the title of this first lesson from "Dollars and Sense II: Our Interest in Interest, Managing Savings and Debt." This lesson contains 3 hands-on and progressively challenging simulations designed to let students explore and experience the system of compounding interest.

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.
