Whether you're a soccer player, a CEO, a gamer, a parent, or even a penguin on the Antarctic ice shelf, you are making decisions that rely on the principles of Game Theory. This relatively new discipline utilizes math and logic to determine actions that will secure the best outcomes. In this introductory class, learn how these--and many other people and animals--use Game Theory to make decisions, often without even realizing it. Game theory has been the specialty of winners of more than 10 recent Nobel prizes.
"I liked how we learned about game theory and then played games, applying our knowledge." - Claire T., student.
