This writing-intensive course will focus on the broader societal impacts of quantitative subjects. Examples may include fairness of criminal sentencing algorithms, transparency of financial and economic analyses, and the evaluation of climate change statistics. We will study (1) the two-way communication between technical experts and the larger public, and (2) how we navigate and use the results of quantitative reasoning. This is not a mathematics course in the typical sense. It will not involve any computations and does not have any mathematical prerequisites.
