ENVS 340 - Systems Modeling


Semester Offered: Second Semester
Credits (Range): 3 hours
Attribute: 3NS

Computer simulation models are powerful tools for organizing information, gaining insight into underlying dynamics, and predicting the behavior of complex systems. Students will design and construct models as a means of building understanding of a variety of biological and environmental phenomena. Models developed will cover topics ranging from physiology to community dynamics to large-scale flows of material and energy. These examples will provide students with systems-thinking skills and a library of analogies that can be broadly applied to problems in the natural and social sciences. Credit can be counted towards either biology or environmental studies majors. Consent of the instructor required. Enrollment Limit: 16
Instructor: J. Petersen
Prerequisites & Notes
Prerequisites: Biology 120 or BIOL 102, at least one college chemistry course, comfort using algebraic equations.
