The course presents a multitude of models that enable us to analyze human and systems behavior and interactions. By making implicit assumptions explicit we can understand real world processes better.
very informative and insightful on how to use the various models at our disposal to take optimal decision. Also, was nostalgic to go back in time where these models were part of my university degree.

A really useful and interesting lesson. Learning through numbers of simple but meaningful models, providing me an introduction to model thinking.

Great lectures, but I would appreciate the course much more if it went deeper into the mathematics and how to model things from that perspective.
It’s really funny,and we can learn a lot from this course,even without any awareness.Just a few words that we cannot get it indeed frustrated us.

Excelente curso. Aprendí bastante de los tipos de modelos que existen las realidades en las que se pueden aplicar y cómo aplicarlos. Sigan así!

Despite I had a "theory construction & model building" course at my university, it was still a pleasure to go through these lectures, thanks!
par Aloys F T•
My favorite course of all time.. It has a lot of interesting concepts and a fascinating perspective on this weird thing the world/society is.
par Aelita M•
A comprehensive course that goes into different areas of science to demonstrate why and how modeling is used. Fun to watch and very clear!
par krishna m•
Excellent course to understand how to use different models to think and make decisions, in general and in a work setting, in particular.
par Cliff S•
Excellent course, wide scale application, highly recommend.
-no technical issues with quizzes or content issues
par Armand R•
Eye-opening cross-disciplinary program with an outstanding teacher. Cannot be better, thank you Internet for bringing this to everyone.
par Saishankar S•
This is a 5 Star course that really makes a person "more intelligent" and better at understanding the world and real-life situations.
par Alan Z•
Very cool course shows me how to model many real world examples, tons of modeling techniques, and most importantly, how to think inde
par Emily M•
This course is brilliant. Organised, well paced and has really consolidated the direction of study I would like to pursue. Thank you!
par Şükrü B•
This was one of the best courses I've taken so far. Thanks for providing this great material and information to students worldwide.
par Taffy E•
Excellent course. Even just the first two weeks are worth 5 stars. The math can be intimidating later on. Take what works for you!!
par Otávio B d S S•
Really great course. Thanks University of Michigan and Professor Scott Page for sharing such interesting material with us. Bests!
par ismail k•
It was great introductory course to the awesome world of models. I've enjoyed and learned a lot. Thanks Coursera and Prof. Page.
par Ugo Z•
I enjoy a lot the contents and the way this course is taught. It certainly delivers its promises and it does that with a smile.
par Murshida M•
A very fun and comprehensive course. Helps you to look at the world with a better and a much clearer perspective using models.
par Bart H J•
If you're interested in thinking more accurately, this course exposes you to a variety of models to help with that. Terrific!
par Godwin K•
Broad & Simple to follow - some basic math is required. Many models introduced and extremenly useful to have in your toolbox.
par Din K•
Very good introduction to model thinking. Thanks for providing this free course and the excellent delivery from Scott Page.
par Ellen P•
I definitely will recommend it to some other friends! It made me understood much better with great and detailed examples.
