Professor: Jeffrey Allen Saunders


Course Description
It's about explaining why and how people think wrongly (irrationally). For example, why goalkeeper will go to either left or right instead of staying at the middle, even if all positions share similar probability of catching the ball. The content is quite interesting and there're some interactive activities in class, but it is quite chur because there is exam. The class is big (288 students!), so if you can't reg any other better CCST and are not afraid of chur, take this course. Friendly to non-psycho or non-econ (as there're some econ terms involved) students.
Assessment
Tutorials with mini-tests ; online tests every week; about 1200 words essay regarding a psychological topic with readings given;mid-term test ;exam. The course is really filled with tests and exams...

Course Description
This course is quite interesting yet challenging especially to those who have not taken any psychology courses. Basic knowledge of probability is needed. The workload is a bit heavy (e.g. monthly homework assignment composed of 5-6 short essay questions, biweekly MC quizzes) but hard work will pay off.
