Computational Thinking: Modeling Dynamic Systems Using Vensim
SESSION: Computational Thinking: Modeling Dynamic Systems Using Vensim
EVENT TYPE: Communities, Education
TIME: 1:30PM - 3:00PM
Speaker(s):Bob Panoff, Steve Gordon, Susan Ragan
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 compound interest.
