The two simulations that I want you to consider for the Final Portfolio are finally available. These have only been verified to work properly in an up-to-date version of the Google Chrome web browser, so install and use that when viewing these pages. At the moment the animations do not run properly in Firefox, and I do not know how well it works in Safari or Internet Explorer.
The links are:
Ising Model Simulation: https://jkglasbrenner.github.io/ising-model-js/
Schelling’s Model of Segregation Simulation: https://jkglasbrenner.github.io/schelling-model-js/
I’ll also provide the link to these on the Final Portfolio assignment page.
This simulation part of the portfolio is meant to be fun and informative, with you writing two paragraphs about them (one paragraph per simulation). I want to see that you can notice the similarities and differences between the two simulations, and can brainstorm a (meaningful) new feature that would be interesting to incorporate into one of them. I don’t expect you to be able to code these in R or anything like that, just that you understand enough about how these simulations work.
