The purpose of this IQP is to study simulation-based software to aid in teaching middle and high school science and math. Specifically, we researched three software packages: StarLogo:, Stella, and ModelIt. We researched (1) what skills and knowledge are required of teachers to use these programs and (2) when each program would be best used, and what combinations of programs would be best and easiest to implement lessons in standard science and math curriculum.
