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.
All the way 5! I am a last year Ph.D. candidate and this is one of the best courses I have ever had in my whole life! The instructor is amazing! I highly recommend.

Clear. Well paced. Methodical. Ideal balance of mathematics and practical application. Mathematics not too overwhelming although it did push my thinking hard.

A very good course. Need time to be completed. It should continue on and lectures should be available every time regarless of end of quizez or assignments.

Well done, the professor has a great personality which makes it fun to understand the topics. Using math to solve practical real life problems. Amazing!
By kid s•
very interesting topics covered in the course, serves as a good starting ground on model thinking, and to delve deeper into some of the models mentioned!

Don't let the length of the course discourage you. It is worth it by the end. Very informative and useful in both professional and personal life.

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

Excellent course to understand how to use different models to think and make decisions, in general and in a work setting, in particular.
By Cliff S•
Excellent course, wide scale application, highly recommend.
-no technical issues with quizzes or content issues

Very cool course shows me how to model many real world examples, tons of modeling techniques, and most importantly, how to think inde
