What aspects of basic system dynamics are covered by the traditional school math curriculum? The Booth Sweeney and Sterman (2000) bathtub tasks and the Jensen and Brehmer (2003) rabbits-and-foxes task were dissected into aspects. Questionnaires with tasks tapping into the identified aspects were administered to first-semester university students with a math-intensive high school background. Performance were as expected and conformed to the results of previous studies with these tasks. These results encourage further effort to devise additional tasks covering more basic aspects identified, and refining the existing tasks. Equipped with a well-design battery of tasks, it would in all likelihood be informative to test it with different participant groups, such as undergraduate, as well as graduate, students in math, engineering, and system dynamics.
