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.

Great content and lectures, that possibly provides new dimensions to look/explain the situation in context, I guess I will comeback for references to continue with this journey in to 'Model Thinking'

This course is both very instructive and fun. The professor covers a lot of interesting topics. It would be better if he speaks a little bit slower, so the non native English speakers like me can understand all he is saying.

The course focus is broad and instructor is great. However, some particular models have been described too general, e.g. the lectures on Lyapunov functions had no connection to the ODEs and other mathematical phenomena.

Very interesting course. It isn't a hard course whatsoever but the concepts you learn are very fundamental and can be applied in so many domains. Very important to be a well rounded thinker.

The content of the course is good, but the organization needs to be improved, and the focus is not prominent, knowledge is extensive but the analysis is not deep.

A must do course for everyone.. It's a rejoinder to all those who say that what you learn in schools/colleges is of no use in practical life.

Model Thinking by the University of Michigan makes one a better thinker and helps one to understand practical situations using models.

One of the greatest courses on MOOC! The only thing which is still hard to handle with is the temp of speech of the tutor. :)

Contributed to making me a clearer thinker and was a good refreshment of material from my MSc Business Administration.

Love it! This is my first foray into model thinking. I wish there is a better way to say thanks to Professor Page.

Good introduction to the material. But don't depend on the lectures / course if you want to go deeper

The teacher is witty. It's a great course, but more mathematical calculating would be better.
