Nordhaus Opportunistic Model

The overall conclusion of Nordhaus’ analysis is that governments manipulate the economy to increase their electoral results, and be re-elected.

Urban model

Urban areas do not develop in a haphazard way – various factors determine what land use takes place in different areas or ‘zones’. In turn, these zones may affect the volume of pedestrian or vehicular traffic. Some of the factors which affect the ‘make-up’ of a town or City include:- Historical factors:Read More

Modeling complex phenomena

This is a qualitative study seeking to investigate two different modeling-based approaches in science education and how fifth graders, having their first experience on a modeling-based teaching environment, interact toward these approaches. The two approaches differ to the fact that one is based on a computer-based programming environment (Stagecast Creator)Read More
