Abstract: Developing and constructing models is considered a core scientific practice by the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). Complex systems present a challenge for students to model due to their dynamic, unintuitive, and interconnected elements. This study aims to examine how 5th-6th grade students symbolically represent connections between elements of complex systems models. It looks specifically at the usage of arrows as a semiotic tool that students use to model various relationships in a system.
