Daisyworld Lab
In this activity, students explore Daisyworld, a model of a self-regulating system incorporating positive and negative feedbacks. The model explores the effect of a steadily increasing solar luminosity on daisy populations and the resulting planetary temperature. The activity was developed to introduce upper level undergraduate students to the concepts of dynamical systems modeling. The exercise guides students through some of the mathematics behind the modeling. Learning goals, context for use,

Lennard-Jones Potential Model
The EJS Lennard-Jones Potential model shows the dynamics of a particle of mass m within this potential. You can drag particle to change its position and you can drag the energy-line to change its total energy. The Lennard-Jones potential function is a reasonably accurate model of interactions between noble gas atoms.  The binding energy epsilon is the depth of the potential well and minimum molecular separation are set equal to unity.  This simulation uses uses a natural system of units the m

Modeling a Changing World
Modeling a Changing World written by mathematics professor Tim Chartier and his student Nick Dovidio presents curricular material in an OSP Launcher package to motivate the need for numerically solving ordinary differential equations. The package discusses such applications as a mass-spring system and its connection to computer simulation for movies. An interactive model that simulates a two-body gravitational model of the moon and earth allows for exploring the topic of numerical error. Other m

Ecybermission
This is a web-based math, science, and technology competition for teams in grades 6, 7, 8, and 9. Each team proposes a solution to a real problem in their community and competes for regional and national awards (such as U.S. savings bonds). Last year's winning 8th-grade team devised a 2-digit key code system to speed the handling of 911 calls. Registration is open through December 15.

Balls in a Box Model
The Balls in a Box model shows a system of particles is very sensitive to its initial conditions. In general, an isolated system of many particles that is prepared in a nonrandom configuration will change in time so as to approach its most random configuration where it is in equilibrium. What happens if we choose the initial conditions in a very special way? The default initial condition corresponds to eight stationary particles perfectly aligned on the x-axis. Two particles approach from the l

Circumnavigating Pendulum Model
The EJS Circumnavigating Pendulum model displays the dynamics of a mechanical oscillator in uniform circular motion. The mechanical oscillator is free to move in two directions. This 2-dimensional simulation displays all the dynamical features of the Foucault pendulum, except for the dependency of the Foucault pendulum precession on latitude. The simulation shows simultaneously the motion with respect to the inertial coordinate system, and the motion as seen from a co-rotating point of view.
