Teaching Chaos and Complex Evolutionary Systems Theories at the Introductory Level part of Teaching Activities
This is a learning progression of 12 models leading to 19 learning outcomes designed to introduce chaos and complex systems theories concepts in 3 - 5 50 minute classes. Includes power points of class ...
Alternative futures lesson part of Teaching Activities
This lesson is the culmination of a course on river systems restoration being taught at the University of Washington as part of the Project "Data Sets and Inquiry in Geoscience Environmental Restoration ...
Modeling Earth's Temperature part of Quantitative Skills:Activity Collection
Students use the STELLA program to create hierarchies of models of increasing complexity to understand the absorption of solar energy by the Earth and its radiation of that energy back to space.
Water Bucket lab activity part of Teaching Activities
Online lab activity to explore the generic structure of a leaky water tank. Time delay and equilibrium are introduced.
Daisyworld Model part of Cutting Edge:Complex Systems:Teaching Activities
In this exercise, students recreate the classic Daisyworld model of Watson and Lovelock (1983). Daisyworld is a planet covered by two species of daisy, one white and one black, whose growth is determined by ...
Modeling Global Climate Change part of Cutting Edge:Complex Systems:Teaching Activities
This activity explores the role of energy in global climate change. Students explore netlogo models of climate, and learn about cumulative effects.
Interactive Model Problem Set part of Cutting Edge:Complex Systems:Teaching Activities
This is a problem set for the course Modeling and Assessment for Policy (graduate course at MIT). It is designed to enable students to use interactive models and reflect on their use in a policy context. It relates ...
Scenario building to understand complex systems part of Cutting Edge:Complex Systems:Teaching Activities
Scenario building is a method of understanding and planning for outcomes of an uncertain future. It was initially developed by oil companies and was further developed during the Millennium Ecosystem Assessment. In ...
Evolution of antibiotic resistance in bacteria part of Cutting Edge:Complex Systems:Teaching Activities
This activity is intended to guide students to apply principles of evolution by natural selection to explain a real world biological phenomenon (the evolution of bacteria populations resistant to common ...
The Standing Ovation Problem for NetLogo part of Cutting Edge:Complex Systems:Teaching Activities
The assignment asks students to construct an agent-based model of a standing ovation. It provides some basic code that allows them to initialize a population of seated event attendees and asks them to consider how ...
