Before the Numbers

Alex Krejci
B204 Academic Building

Our world is increasingly filled with numbers – news reports are providing more statistics, Facebook feeds are plastered with infographics, and political debates revolve around the use of data for argumentation. In this talk, we will explore the role of numbers in our world. Through discussion and role play, we will become familiar with how we use numbers and try to determine if this use is helpful, harmful, or neither. You may be asked to take on roles you don’t agree with, I simply ask that take it with a light-heart and do your best!
