When viewing the Technical Program schedule, on the far righthand side
is a column labeled "PLANNER." Use this planner to build your own
schedule. Once you select an event and want to add it to your personal
schedule, just click on the calendar icon of your choice (outlook
calendar, ical calendar or google calendar) and that event will be
stored there. As you select events in this manner, you will have your
own schedule to guide you through the week.
You can also create your personal schedule on the SC11 app (Boopsie) on your smartphone. Simply select a session you want to attend and "add" it to your plan. Continue in this manner until you have created your own personal schedule. All your events will appear under "My Event Planner" on your smartphone.
SESSION: COMPUTATIONAL THINKING: Modeling Dynamic Systems Using Vensim Part I
EVENT TYPE: Education
TIME: 10:30AM - 12:00PM
SESSION CHAIR: Steven Gordon
Presenter(s):Steven I. Gordon, Bob Panoff, Jennifer Houchins
ABSTRACT: Systems based modeling is used to demonstrate aggregate change over time. Using Vensim, we will show examples of models illustrating concepts such as equilibrium, exponential growth, interdependent cycles, and feedback. We will investigate the mathematics behind the model using a problem involving population growth.
Prerequisite: "Introduction to Modeling and Simulation as Teaching Tools" session or equivalent.
