Quantitative Reasoning Foundation: Mental Events

This topic-based module develops quantitative reasoning skills through a structured analysis of an important but accessible problem, imparting to students the appreciation that, for many questions/issues, a quantitative analysis can provide the insight and clarity that complements and indeed moves beyond what might be gained through a qualitative approach. While the most important element of the class will be a hands-on quantitative exploration of the problem in question, students will conclude by considering the limits of quantitative analysis in the chosen case. This module will focus on the various methods of measuring mental events, the limits of these methods, and the impact of these limitations on the conclusions that might be drawn from the data.
