GFQR1045 Making a Smart Decision (3 units)
GCNU1026 Smart Decisions or GFQR1017 Smart Decisions
- Medium of Instruction:
This course aims to introduce students a basic understanding of quantitative reasoning behind making smart decisions to maximize our benefit in different situations, and to apply quantitative methods to understand and possibly resolve related current affairs. This course also focuses on applying mathematical tools to solve real-world problems. By exploring underlying mathematical idea, students will learn how to identify the objects to be maximized (or minimized) and clarify the notion “best” under various situations. One major tool to solve these problems is graph consisting of only vertices and edges, but other tools will also be introduced briefly. Interactive learning activities in the form of quizzes and group discussions, etc, form important parts in this course.
