Course Syllabus

Abstract

The models covered in this class provide a foundation for future social science classes, whether they be in economics, political science, business, or sociology. Mastering this material will give you a huge leg up in advanced courses. They also help you in life. Here's how the course will work. For each model, there is a short, easily digestible overview lecture. Then, there are technical details of the model. Those technical lectures won't require calculus but be prepared for some algebra. The syllabus based on online course https://www.coursera.org/learn/model-thinking
