very informative and insightful on how to use the various models at our disposal to take optimal decision. Also, was nostalgic to go back in time where these models were part of my university degree.
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.

One of the best courses I've seen. Broad coverage of different types of models and many have a place in the life of an analyst or data scientist. Excellent. I also strongly recommend Scott Page's books.
This course is simply AMAZING!!! Thank you Michigan University, & Mr. Scott for your meticulous efforts in bringing to the world quality education in the most simplified pattern!!! Kuddos to Coursera!!!

Very good and inspiring course. It teaches around 20 different models, not overwhelming you with math but giving you nonetheless a good and solid introduction. Also, the reading material is really good.

Excelente curso para desenvolver modelos analíticos que vão muito além do senso comum, de forma estruturada e crítica, a partir de dados e inferências estatísticas, matemáticas e sócio-comportamentais.

Ótimo curso !
Um dos melhores que já fiz, com certeza passei a enxergar múltiplas situações de forma diferente.
O Curso cumpre com seu objetivo de fazer pessoas melhores para um mundo melhor .

Wonderful course and equally wonderful instructor. I really like how Scott builds up from a very simple model and by explaining the intuition behind how we got the math, explains the maths.

This course is a great introduction to simple but useful models. The prominent feature of the course is an intuition and practical examples based one the models provided. Many thanks!

I learned a lot in this course.
I think it is a essential course to social scientists especially those that are a little lost, don't knowing how they contribute to the wider society.

This is a course for anyone who wants to be able to think logically. As an IT professional I would recommend this course to my colleagues in the Information Technology field.

Very inspiring! Brings me into a whole new world, to look at things from brand new perspective.
I love this course and would like to be posted on any update on this subject.

First time I have ever been excited about algebra and calculus. Understanding models will prove to be of great value when asked to interpret the meaning of collected data.

Loving this course so far, eager and excited to continue it and finish very soon. A great addition of analytical frameworks and management strategies to add to my toolkit.

Really good. Fantastic overview.
For my taste it was a bit too easy and it could have gone more in depth in some topics. But I understand the need to keep it general also.
by Carla M•
Very interesting! The teacher explains really well and even though his expertise is social science, he always explains how this thinking can pertain to other realms.

Excellent overview course with potential for individuals to go further and also think about decision making in general. One of the most useful courses I have taken.
All the way 5! I am a last year Ph.D. candidate and this is one of the best courses I have ever had in my whole life! The instructor is amazing! I highly recommend.

Clear. Well paced. Methodical. Ideal balance of mathematics and practical application. Mathematics not too overwhelming although it did push my thinking hard.

A very good course. Need time to be completed. It should continue on and lectures should be available every time regarless of end of quizez or assignments.

I enjoyed this course a lot; it is very comprehensive and let you gain a lot of perspective through the models discussed in it and how you can apply those.
by Prakash H•
I have downloaded all the videos and even the lecture notes (as well prepared one). Greatly helpful to my profession. Thank you for this wonderful course.
by Omar S•
Well done, the professor has a great personality which makes it fun to understand the topics. Using math to solve practical real life problems. Amazing!
by Wu S•
very interesting topics covered in the course, serves as a good starting ground on model thinking, and to delve deeper into some of the models mentioned!
