The Ross School, East Hampton, NY, Fall 2007

Complex Dynamical Systems:
Modeling and Simulation with NetLogo

A Math-Science-Tech elective for high school students by Ralph Abraham (UC Santa Cruz) and Gary Skellington Jr. (Ross High School) with team members from the Ross School community.
  • The Math: Chaos theory, complex dynamical systems.
  • The Science: Social and political theory, ecosystems.
  • The Tech: NetLogo, an agent-based modeling language.
The idea for this course emerged during a Ross High School trip to Spain, Spring 2007, and owes much to:

The course will follow two parallel tracks for the first six weeks, then converge into a common track for the final four weeks. Course data for Part II (by Ralph Abraham) will be posted on this website.
