Game theory is a field of mathematics and economics that tries to predict the choices that perfectly rational decision-makers (players) make in given situations. It is especially powerful as a framework for analyzing players and their decisions because a basic understanding of the underlying mathematical ideas can unlock a whole new way of thinking about other fields and take your studies of people and their interactions to a new level. This class will provide a strong foundation in game...
Students will learn game theory as a way to unlock a whole new way of thinking about other fields and take their studies of people and their interactions to a new level.
The most mandatory weekly activity that I will actively send individual reminder emails for if not completed is to fill out the Google Form with answers to the weekly "game" by Friday. Please let me know if some schedule flexibility would be useful for your family! Beyond that, completion of the Nearpod lectures and participation in the discussions is expected, and participation in the weekly scavenger hunt is highly encouraged.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
No live meetings, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
