Project 0: NetLogo Model Presentation

posted Nov 20, 2018, 10:57 AM by JonAlf Dyrland-Weaver   [ updated Dec 8, 2018, 4:45 PM ]
For this assignment you and a partner are going to make a presentation on one of the NetLogo programs in the included models library. You will select a model, then put together a short (~5 minute) presentation along with a 1-2 page paper discussing the model.

Project Specifics:
  • You can use any program in the SAMPLE MODELS directory except:
    • Anything under games
    • Flocking
    • Genetic Drift
    • Cellular Automata
    • Optical Illusions
    • Fire
    • Sound Machines
  • Your Presentation will be graded in each of the following areas:
    • Information
      • How well you explain the purpose of the model. 
      • What is it? What does it do? How does it work?
      • What are we supposed to learn from this.
      • Are the any limitations to the model?
      • Is there any interesting/strange behavior we can observe?
    • Element Description
      • How well you explain the interface elements (sliders, monitors, graphs...)
      • What are they? How do they impact the model.
      • Some of this might overlap with the Purpose section.
    • Quality of Presentation
      • How well you explain things.
      • 3 very important tips:
        • SPEAK LOUDLY
        • Do not speak with your back to the class
        • Show examples of the model working while you present
        • Unless there's something really interesting in the code section, refrain from discussing the code itself. The purpose is to demonstrate the model, not teach the code.
    • Excitement
      • You chose the model because you liked it, this should show in your presentation. Try to get the rest of us to understand why you liked it so much.
    • Written Report
      • Your written report should be 1-2 pages and contain all the informational content of your presentation. 
      • Do not pad it with unnecessary information.
Partner/Model Selection and Presentation Dates
  • We will have 2-3 presentations at the end of each class
  • You or your partner (NOT BOTH) will fill out this form:
  • Selections are first come first serve, if someone before you selects the same model, or you pick an inappropriate model, you will be notified.
  • Once all groups have been created I will randomly order the groups for actual presentations.
  • Each group should fill out the form by Monday, 11/26
  • If you do not inform me of your group by then, I will randomly assign you a partner.
  • The presentations will begin after that.
