This is an introductory lesson for using certain types of computational models designed using a software called NetLogo.
In this lesson, students will learn:
how to computationally study spread of wildfire
how to engage in the scientific inquiry practices of constructing knowledge in the context of an "emergent systems microworld" (ESM)
how to engage computational thinking practices in the context of an ESM. We will focus on four computational thinking practices, namely: data practices, modeling and simulation practices, computational problem solving practices, and systems thinking practices
