Getting Started Bundle provides a complete set of resources to
build your dynamic modeling skills and begin applying them to real-world problems. Using
these tools, you’ll learn how Systems Thinking helps policy-makers, researchers, and scientists find solutions to complex problems.
An Introduction to Systems Thinking with STELLA sets the stage by
describing the language of Systems Thinking and applying it to the dynamic
modeling process. You’ll be introduced to classic “stock and flow” infrastructures
common to many physical, biological and social issues. Modeling
Dynamic Systems: Lessons for a First Course builds on the basic
foundation and offers a self-study, hands-on course to learn how to create
dynamic models using STELLA software.
Included with Modeling Dynamic Systems is a CD with
lessons and models that explore a wide variety of topics—population
dynamics, public health issues, drug compound pharmacokinetics, urban
development planning, and more.
