Full course description
Everyday we make decisions – big and small. But there are lots of ways in which we could make better, more informed decisions. Our biases and preconceptions can lead us to make poor assumptions about the world, and data is often presented in a misleading way.
This course will take you through a case study about bushfire – how do you assess risk in such an uncertain situation? You’ll start to think about how data can be manipulated but also how it can be unpacked to make realistic assumptions... you will explore basic probability and tools such as decision trees to help you make better decisions in your own context.
Finally, you will get the chance to apply and share your own decisions about data.
