You are reading an older version of this FlexBook® textbook: CK-12 Modeling and Simulation for High School Teachers: Principles, Problems, and Lesson Plans Go to the latest version.

For this unit, the student will:

  1. Evaluate the possible short-term and long-term effects of accidental introduction of life from us to "them" and vice versa, and predict the possible outcomes of those identified effects, including:
    1. Speculating on the "best case" and "worst case" scenarios of introducing a pathogen into another population.
    2. Analyze the potential effects to native ecosystems due to the introduction of said organism.
    3. Analyze how foreign genetic material might be transmitted throughout a population by modeling this transmission using the simulation tool.
    4. Evaluate the possible effects to the make-up of a population as a result of the transmission of a foreign organism or its genetic material.
  2. Apply the Engineering Design Process to a real-world problem.
  3. Explore the use of both physical and computer-generated models and simulations in content-specific lessons/activities.
  4. Utilize digital media and environments to communicate and work collaboratively to support individual learning and contribute to the learning of others.
