Overview

The role of simulation modeling in understanding dynamic processes is now extending beyond research and university curricula to pre-college education. Computer modeling offers the promise of transforming teaching of many subjects, notably science, and is enhanced by the adoption of new standards for science education, the increasing access to scientific information through computer networks, and the availability of powerful, user-friendly modeling software. This book and its accompanying software will bring the tools and excitement of modeling to pre-college teachers, to researchers involved in curriculum development, and to software developers interested in the pre-college market.
