Lessons in Mathematics: A Dynamic Approach by Diana Fisher provides a set of materials that can be used to supplement current curriculum for Algebra I, Algebra II, Pre-Calculus and Calculus classes.

Students build understanding of abstract mathematical functions (such as linear, quadratic, and exponential) by creating models using the Stella software. They then can make use of the software's simulation capabilities to explore solutions to real-world problems.

Diana Fisher's Modeling Dynamic Systems: Lessons for a First Course, the follow-up to her popular Lessons in Mathematics: A Dynamic Approach, provides a set of tools that enable educators at the secondary and college levels to teach a one-semester or one-year course in System Dynamics modeling. Developed for beginning modelers, the lessons contained in this book can be used for a core curriculum or for independent study.

Modeling has been used for years to help scientists and policy makers find solutions to complex problems. It is one of the most valuable and useful applications of mathematics. However, most models are difficult to understand and require significant mathematics to interpret.

Course materials meet National Science Education Standards (NSES) and National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) standards and are out-of-the-box ready for use in your classroom today.

About the Author

Diana Fisher

Diana Fisher received her bachelor's degree in mathematics from the University of Texas, El Paso and her master's degree in mathematics from the University of Montana. A teacher since 1969, she is currently teaching Advanced Algebra, AP Calculus, C++ and Java Programming, and Modeling Dynamic Systems at Wilson High School in Portland, Oregon.

In 2011, the System Dynamics Society presented Diana with a Lifetime Achievement Award for her work bringing system dynamics to K-12 education. She was just the second recipient in the history of the System Dynamics Society to receive this prestigious award.

She has presented at the International System Dynamics Conference since 1994, presenting plenary papers in 1998, 2000 and 2003. In 1995 she received the Presidential Award for Excellence in Mathematics Teaching for the state of Oregon. In 1996 she was first-place co-winner of the Intel Innovations in Teaching Award for the state of Oregon. She was the director of the National Science Foundation (NSF) CC-STADUS (Cross-Curricular Systems Thinking and Dynamics Using STELLA) grant (1993-1996) and also co-directed the NSF CC-SUSTAIN (Cross-Curricular Systems Using STELLA: Training and In-service) grant (1997-2000).
