Description:

Six computer simulations are summarized, each of which can be used as both a game between teams of students and as an experimental data generator. A common feature of the simulations is their flexibility and their requirement for student decision-making. The simulations are SEEDLING (plant physiology and plant competition), ALIEN (cardiopulmonary physiology), CYCLE (physiology of the menstrual cycle and human reproduction), PLANKTON (lake phytoplankton physiology), SHARK (foraging strategy of a small shark), and DUELING ALLELES (population genetics). Part of the student exercise for ALIEN is described here in full. All programs operate on both Apple and IBM computers, and are available from Worth Publishers.
