Modeling Dynamics Systems: Lessons for a First Course
by Diana M. Fisher

This book provides lessons for a year-long introductory course in System Dynamics modeling. It is built as a hands-on curriculum where students build models the entire year, gaining skill over time. The lessons can be used for a core curriculum or for independent study.

The hardcopy of the text is the teacher’s solution manual. The student lessons and all of the solution models are contained on a CD in the back of the book. One book provides a license for one teacher to photocopy the materials for all of his/her students each year. (Available in English and Japanese.)

Lessons in Mathematics: A Dynamic Approach
by Diana M. Fisher

This book provides teachers of mathematics supplemental lessons that can be used to enhance algebra, pre-calculus, and calculus classes. Students build models to demonstrate linear, exponential, quadratic, convergent, logistic, and sinusoidal change over time. They then explore the models to determine solutions to real-world problems.

Many of the examples are applicable to science classes. Case studies, like the spread of contagious diseases or how lead accumulates in the human body are also provided to give students an opportunity to work with more rigorous applications. One book provides a license for one teacher to photocopy the materials for all of his/her students each year. (Available in English and Spanish.)
