Module 3 Summary of Pacing Guide:
Day 1: Introduction to ecosystems as complex adaptive systems by participatory simulation (Papercatchers) and preview Rabbits & Grass model
Day 2: Decode model and design and run experiments
Day 3: Modify Rabbits and Grass model to add a predator, run experiments to study the effect of this change on the ecosystem.
Day 4: Introduction to the Computational Science
cycle, design and develop customizations to your model.
Day 5: Build and debug model, run experiments, analyze the results and relate to Ecosystems as Complex Systems.
