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.
The mission of the University of Michigan is to serve the people of Michigan and the world through preeminence in creating, communicating, preserving and applying knowledge, art, and academic values, and in developing leaders and citizens who will challenge the present and enrich the future.

来自MINDWARE: CRITICAL THINKING FOR THE INFORMATION AGE 的热门评论
A pretty crucial look at the common fallacies and biases that influence the way we absorb information. This is highly recommended to all people.
I benefited a lot from this course because it is easy to convey the information, really an achievement that deserves thanks to the organizers of this training course
The professor was excellent and the whole course was very much easy to follow. I enjoyed the exercises and the information learned was precise.
In my opinion, a must-take course. Hopefully someday it will be included as mandatory curriculum for public high schoolers all around the world.
