Probability plays a large role in models of complex adaptive systems. We’ve programmed our agents to mimic the movement of creatures in the real world. There are also chance events that occur upon when agents interact, such as the passing of a contagion from one person to the other.

Modeling the movement of agents, whether they are people, molecules, cars or ideas, is an important part of modeling systems. Different agents will have different movement patterns and varying amount of randomness in their “walks.” The amount of randomness in a walk can have impact on systems.
Archived Material: Module 1 Summary (for StarLogo 1.0)
This resource includes all materials and links for CS in Science, Module 1 for StarLogo Nova 1.0 (as updated in 2015). We recommend teachers become familiar with StarLogo Nova 2.0, which includes many improvements in the code blocks and the operating system, and transition to the updated materials for CS in Science, Module 1 for StarLogo Nova 2.0.
