Introduction to Systems – Overview

This is our introductory module that we recommend teaching before each of our other modules to give students a background in systems.

Introduction to Systems – Unit Plan

To foster understanding of systems, students first work with a familiar example – a cell phone network. Students manually build a schematic of a cell phone network within the class and learn how the complexity of networks makes their analysis very difficult to perform by hand.

Lesson 1 – Cell phone network introduction

A network is a system of interconnected parts. These parts may be organisms, genes, molecules, etc…Nodes are the parts of a network, and edges are the relationships between those parts of the network

Lesson 2 – Cytoscape cell phone network

Scientists use computer programs to analyze networks because networks are often very complex. Students use the computer program Cytoscape to analyze the cell phone network.
