This video explains why the Wolfram SystemModeler software is a useful tool for teaching and learning in VCE Systems Engineering. It explores the pre-built models that come within the SystemModeler software, and how these models can be used to gain an understanding of engineering design. The video also shows how to set out a notebook, import a model and make a basic simulation of the model, all of which can be included in a record of achievement for school-based assessment.
Getting started with Wolfram SystemModeler video transcript
This video takes a step-by-step look at how to import pre-built models into the SystemModeler simulation centre. It allows the user to add animation to models, save animation views for future reference and review and modify experiment settings. The video shows how to edit these models for use in an electronic record of achievement for school-based assessment.

This video takes an in-depth look at how to build dynamic electrotechnological systems models using the Wolfram SystemModeler software. The example of a voltage divider network is used to explore each of the steps in the process, demonstrating how such models are important tools for understanding, design and analysis in VCE Systems Engineering.
Building your own electrotechnological models in Wolfram SystemModeler video transcript
This video demonstrates how models can be operated in Mathematica. The video sets out the steps to take to import an electrotechnological model into SystemModeler in order to generate graphs and plots, and offer effective ways of visualising the behaviour of mathematical processes that can be applied to define and explain the physical characteristics of electrotechnological systems.

This video shows how to use manipulators in Wolfram SystemModeler to conduct experiments on a previously-built model. It shows how to develop an interactive object containing one or more controls to vary the value of one or more parameters.
Manipulating models in Wolfram SystemModeler video transcript
This video explores the interactive notebook environment of Wolfram SystemsModeler, which allows the user to specify and change initial conditions, parameter values and signal functions. The video also demonstrates how to modify more than one variable at a time.
Modifying variables in Wolfram SystemModeler video transcript
This video explores how students can use the ‘manipulate’ command in Wolfram SystemModeler to create a range of interactive applications using a few lines of input. It also shows how to modify original models, creating an interactive object containing one of more controls that can be used to vary the value of one or more parameters.
Using the 'manipulate' command in Wolfram SystemModeler video transcript
This video demonstrates a way to observe an integrated system at work by showing how the Wolfram language can connect to open-source Arduino devices so data can be read and written to shields and extensions. It also shows how to integrate Arduino boards to simulations in Wolfram SystemModeler, enabling the user to visualise the inputs and outputs of the Arduino, and make connections between the two.
Connecting Arduino devices with Wolfram SystemModeler video transcript
This video demonstrates how to use Wolfram SystemModeler to link inputs to outputs when creating an integrated and controlled system using the Systems engineering design process. It also discusses the factors that will influence the creation and use of an integrated and controlled system. In addition the video provides advice how to demonstrate this understanding in a record of achievement for school-based assessment.
Using Wolfram SystemModeler to teach concepts in VCE Systems Engineering video transcript
This video provides an overview of how Wolfram SystemModeler can be used to respond to a design brief for the creation of an integrated controlled system to meet an identified problem, need, opportunity or situation. The video specifically provides ideas for ways to research, devise, design and model design options, as well as offer ways to run diagnostic test procedures and interpret data as part of school-based assessment.
