Comments on the course

Course overall was fun (for the first 80% of the class) and different. It makes you really think! And if you like to think, you'll enjoy this class, too.

Course Content

Basic game theory was very useful to learn. The advanced material like Signaling and n-player games towards the end was very tricky to understand for me. I got a 46% on the final, but finished with a B in the class. Class average was around a 70%. He curves exams and quizzes if the class average is below a 70%, which will rarely ever happen anyway. Class is very exam heavy.

Comments on the professor

Pros: He is understanding, very knowledgeable, very specific with his wording, and offers a little bit of extra credit in the end. He is amazing with teaching online. He knows how to teach on Zoom and how to communicate. He offers practice exams and reviews problem sets very well. Cons: His wording is very specific, but on exams, it can get a little bit tricky to comprehend. He doesn't try to trick you, but his wording can be tricky sometimes.

Advice

This class is logic-based, instead of math-based. Ask a bunch of questions, as it will get tricky, especially towards the end!

As far as I know, Daniel Wagner is the best. But I've only had one Game Theory professor, and that was him. He was great for Game Theory Online though.

Prof: Fatma Gunay / Summer 2021

Comments on the course

Very interesting topics, starts out very easy and ramps up very quickly by the half-mark to the end of the term.

Comments on the professor

Prof Gunay really cares about her students and that they're learning, she will help you immensely if you ask for it.

Advice

Go to her office hours at least once and say hi or make an impression, she grades very subjectively and found that she graded my second exam rather leniently compared to my classmates after I spoke to her after my first exam.

Suggest a professor

Gunay, don't have any experience with any others.

Really interesting and engaging course! Decently difficult, but more focused on logic than math.
