E1428: What’s the point of education? in Splash Spring 15 (May. 02, 2015)
Mark Twain once said, “Never let your schooling interfere with your education.” But what does he mean? What’s schooling, and what’s education? Is there a difference? And most importantly, how do they affect you and how much you enjoy your life? In this discussion class, we'll put basic assumptions about school and education to the test and then explore what all this means for education policy.


M1429: Bizarre Paradoxes in Statistics in Splash Spring 15 (May. 02, 2015)
Did you know that most people's friends are more popular than they are? That in a classroom of 23 students, there's a 50% chance that two share a birthday? That it's easy to make a (false) statistical argument that smoking cigarettes will make you live longer? In this class, we'll explore a bunch of powerful paradoxes in statistics and think about situations where our common intuitions about data fail spectacularly.

C1008: What's the point of education? in Splash! Fall 2012 (Oct. 06, 2012)
Mark Twain once said, "Never let your schooling interfere with your education." But what does he mean? What's schooling, and what's education? Is there a difference? But most importantly, how do they affect you and how much you enjoy your life? And why should we even care? (This "class" won't really be like what you have at school — instead, it'll be a relaxed and free-form discussion.)
