Description

Introduction to inductive reasoning focuses on the role of probability. It aims to help you understand and use probabilities, statistics, and risk evaluations, and more generally to safely draw inferences when your evidence leaves you unsure as to what is true. In today’s society we are surrounded by the media’s use of probabilities and statistics, and most academic disciplines use them to analyze and present data. This course aims to help students better understand this data, which in turn helps us to make better decisions.
