Abstract

Article addresses an approach to introducing elementary school children to complex systems through mathematical modeling activities. A number of principles for designing such learning experiences are presented, together with examples of children's responses to two sample activities.

Citation countsare sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
