Run and configure model simulations, operating with the Stock, Flow, Variable and Link primitives.
Experience the workflow behind model building with Insight maker.
Create custom simulation displays, and add Value Sliders for primitives.
Showcase this hands-on experience in an interview
In this 1-hour long project-based course, you will create a model that simulates the interrelated dynamics of three different species populations within an environment: plants, deer, and wolves By doing so, you’ll be introduced to Insight Maker, a free web-based simulation environment that supports both System Dynamics modeling and Agent Based modeling. This will equip you with everything you need to know in order to build tailor-made models and simulations. Note: This course works best for learners who are based in the North America region. We’re currently working on providing the same experience in other regions.
There are no hard prerequisites for this project. However, it will be helpful if you are familiar with basic notions of modeling and arithmetic.
