I am teaching an undergraduate simulation course in the spring to industrial engineering students. I have plenty of lecture notes from colleagues, but I am missing simple classroom demos (like an Excel spreadsheet), classroom modeling activities, and case studies. This is a bleg for additional material to enhance my teaching. Please email me with any material or post a link. Thank you in advance!

Do you have access to the COMAP UMAP material?

I simulated an undergraduate for at least 20 years.

Eric, I do not, but I’m not sure they have a lot of simulation material. I had better luck with INFORMS Transactions on Education: http://pubsonline.informs.org/toc/ited/current

Sam Savage’s ‘Decision Making With Insight’ book has some entertaining and illuminating (XLSIM-based) material on simulation. XLSIM is now downloadable free.

Sam Savage has a web site where he discusses what he calls ‘Probability Management.’ There are some Excel spreadsheets there that might be helpful for your class. http://www.probabilitymanagement.org/models.html
