Quantitative Reasoning Foundation: Calculating Risks

This topic-based module develops quantitative reasoning skills through a structured analysis of one 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 moves beyond what might be gained through a qualitative approach. In this module, we will learn quantitative tools to understand and to quantify risks encountered in daily life; to compare and to weigh the consequences of these risks for a more insightful decision-making. We will examine the underlying limitations of these tools.
