Using AgentSheets to teach simulation to undergraduate students



The AgentSheets simulation software has been used for the last two years in a course for undergraduate students. The ease of use and extreme care put into the interface makes this tool a classroom success, allowing students to have hands-on experience of model construction without the overhead of learning complicated frameworks or programming languages. The limitations of the tool, in particular those that make difficult the construction of more complex models, are reviewed.
