Game Theory and IB Global Politics

via xkcd

Its another abbreviated week in IB Glopo 1, I'm afraid. I'll be out of class both on Tuesday (administrative duties/visitors on campus) and Friday (Senior Unity Day) this week. But do not despair; we still have a few hours to get you acquainted with some of the introductory concepts and approaches of Game Theory. We'll start on Monday with the video and article from NPR, followed by some purposeful rounds of Tic-Tac-Toe. On Thursday, we'll continue the conversation and demo with work on Rock-Scissors-Paper (Lizard-Spock). Feel free to use Tuesday and Friday to read and revise any work that you've submitted to me in the past week. In the meantime, the plan for this week is posted below.
