Discrete Modeling and Structures (Course Materials)

By Carrie Diaz Eaton

Bates College and QUBES

These are the materials for DCS course offered at Bates College. This is a sampler of structures and ways they are used to model biological and social phenomena.

The course description is:

This course introduces students to the discrete structures and the methodologies used in discrete
approaches to modeling socio-ecological phenomena. In developing our toolkit for systems
modeling, we will explore questions about the nature of events, change, uncertainty, and
interconnectedness in natural, physical, and social systems. In and out of the classroom, we will
engage actively with terminology, theoretical foundations, strategies for developing and testing
mathematical and computational models. That learning will then be communicated through
symbolic, numeric, visual, and verbal means against the backdrop of the complex, interconnected
world we experience.   Prerequisite: a 200-level DCS course

Students read outside of class, and in class work on labs.
