Objective and rational thinking

Module Overview

Originated by Prof. Felicia Rivera Megret

‘Rationality’ has different meanings in philosophy, economics, sociology, psychology, evolutionary biology, game theory and political science. Rationality is the quality or state of being rational – based on or agreeable to reason. Rationality implies the conformity of beliefs with reasons to believe, or of actions with reasons for action. To determine what behaviour is the most rational.  In this module, we look at the need to make several key assumptions, and to consider a quantifiable formulation of the problem by working in a group in a practical way.

We will explore

  • What is objective and rational thinking?
  • Looking at the ways we think
  • How do we determine what is a ‘problem?
  • Group problem solving
  • Making smart decisions

Our programmes include a range of learning materials to support both teachers and students in the classroom. Content wise, each module is different but some components are common to all to provide assessment tools for teachers and familiar references for students.

This module includes

  • Lesson plan
  • PowerPoint presentation
  • Reflection worksheet
  • Teacher handout
  • Teacher assessment

We believe that some topics are approached more powerfully by bringing in animation. That is why some of the topics have videos to illustrate the learning points
