Models in the Classroom
This paper "Why Model?" presents many good reasons why we model in addition to making predictions.
Build a definition of a successful Science classroom that
integrates modeling and simulation. Tell us what you imagine a
successful Science classroom looks like, how it functions, how the
teacher and students interact, how the students interact with one
another, and the role of computers. Post your definition to your portfolio in the "Final Project->Implementation Plan" area under the heading "What a successful Science classroom that integrates modeling and simulation might look like."
