Tool for Building Simulation Validating How Something Works

SageModeler is an intuitive modeling tool being developed at The Concord Consortium and the CREATE for STEM Institute at Michigan State University for middle school and high school students to build their own models and validate their model design using real-world data. Using the SageModeler tool, students can take their current ideas about how something works and design a runnable simulation without needing to write equations or do traditional coding. By making it possible to map their ideas about a phenomenon to a working computational simulation, students can test, share, evaluate, and revise their model (and their understanding of the phenomenon). SageModeler makes possible three different types of modeling, from basic diagramming of the structure of a system to creation of a static equilibrium model or a dynamic time-based model. A step-by-step tutorial is available in English and Spanish. A Framework for K–12 Science Education and the Next Generation Science Standards recognize the importance of systems and systems models as one of the key crosscutting concepts, and developing and using models as a key science and engineering practice.
