    Balance Alexis lytle PhET interactive simulations The simulation features a lever and several weights that can be placed on the lever. The simulation calculates which side has more force acting upon it by using m1*d1 + m2*d2..., where m is the mass of the object and d is the distance to the fulcrum. The simulation finds the totals for both sides and compares the two numbers. The larger number will move downwards. The simulation provides bricks, people, and mystery objects, all with different weights

    Throughout the Election Simulation, I worked with my cartoonist group Fariha, Tasniya, Ariane, and Flo to come up with ideas to draw for the newspaper based on what we learned and observed about all the Democratic and Republican Candidates. We worked together to come up with a logo for the newspaper and after we decided on the logo for HawkWord with the title HawkWord and the hawk in the middle. We transformed it to the computer to edit the logo. This was a great experience and I enjoyed doing this

         In the excerpt from “Biosphere Politics” by Jeremy Rifkin. I found something very interesting. He states “The separation of human beings from nature and the parallel detachment of human consciousness from the human body has transformed western man into an alien on his own planet” (Rifkin). If people could take trips to other places with out leaving the sanctity of there own home it would be an amazing experience. I also was amazed with Rifkins idea of downloading

    Computer simulations are software applications that enable a user to run a model of a system. Users can interact with computer systems, setting input variables and observing what changes occur to outputs. They can animatedly explore the model domain in real time, start and stop the model, make changes to test hypotheses, and experiment in a non-prescriptive fashion. The interactive, dynamic and open nature computer-based simulation is an excellent teaching tool. A tool that put users in charge

    Abstract The simulation exercise consisted of a scenario in which the student was to be a manager at an up and coming facility. There were 3 sets of tasks to be accomplished, and the results of the student's choices given immediately to the student. Each choice affected the outcome in some way, whether positive or negative. Simulation Paper Upon completion of this exercise, I discovered how truly difficult it is to make managerial decisions. The adage "You can never please everyone all of the

    that common property resources would be decimated in favor of human growth, the right mixture of policies can successfully combat this issue. Our simulation, conducted on January 31, began with companies predominantly fishing the Deep Sea fishery while being more conservative with the smaller Coastal fishery, something rather unusual for this simulation. As the years went on and the amount of fish in the Deep Sea diminished rapidly, going from almost 2500 in Year 1 to about 250 in Year 5, companies

    Jeffrey S. Smith (2003), presented detail survey on the use of Simulation for manufacturing system design and operation. According to his noting numerous books deal with the general topic of simulation (for example, Banks 1998; Banks, Carson, Nelson 1995; Law and Kelton 2000; McHaney 199 1; Pooch and Wall 1993; and Ross 1990, among many others). More books deal with the design, application, and use of specific simulation languages and pack-ages (for example, Dunning 1985; Harrell, Ghosh, Bowden 2000;
