Most professions these days require more than general intelligence. They require in addition the ability to collect, analyze and think about data. Personal life is enriched when these same skills are applied to problems in everyday life involving judgment and choice. This course presents basic concepts from statistics, probability, scientific methodology, cognitive psychology and cost-benefit theory and shows how they can be applied to everything from picking one product over another to critiquing media accounts of scientific research. Concepts are defined briefly and breezily and then applied to many examples drawn from business, the media and everyday life.

Meilleurs avis pour MINDWARE: CRITICAL THINKING FOR THE INFORMATION AGE
Anyone beginner can take this course and be 100 times more understanding of information via any media while also perhaps understanding what is the best choice in some give scenario IRL.
Superb. Being able to (begin to) see cognitive biases and errors daily--and realizing that everyone makes many--is enlightening and humbling.
In my opinion, a must-take course. Hopefully someday it will be included as mandatory curriculum for public high schoolers all around the world.
Excellent combination of logic, statistics and psychology which is the minimum amount of understandings you need to make accurate business decisions.
