Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
Great course with a lot of interesting information! A little fast paced, the professor stated he had fallen a little behind while presenting the lectures but otherwise a great class! This was his first time teaching it, so it is understandable that the pace was a little messed up.
Course highlights:
Lots of probability problems. Probability problems dealing with rolling two dice, flipping coins, and conditional probabilities. Another heavy focus was on game theory, where we learned about mostly two player games and analyzed the strategies in different games. We learned about dominant strategies, Nash equilibrium, Pareto-better and Pareto-optimal solutions. We also heavily focused on graph theory while analyzing graphs of social networks. We learned about strong and weak ties, diameters and distances of nodes in a graph, bridges, balanced graphs and Triadic closure properties.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
Do the homework to the best of your ability and don't save it until the last minute. GO TO YOUR DISCUSSION SECTION the TAs are helpful and (in our class) he gave extra credit to those who attended section.
