qThis book, aimed at precollege teachers, shows how the role of simulation modeling in investigation dynamic processes is now extending beyond research and university environments to the precollege world. Computer modeling has the potential to significantly improve the quality of secondary science and mathematics education. This book introduces teachers and students to many different perspectives of and approaches to scientific inquiry. Each of the chapters and associated software applications integrates mathematics, science, and technology in an authentic manner. The contributors discuss the issues raised by classroom-based modeling projects and provide most of the software applications described.q--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
