Well, I will try this one... It sounds interesting and useful...It's from the Univerity of Michigan. Besides the professor teaching it says.. I will will learn how to think with models and use them to make sense of the complex world around us.

Why do models make us better thinkers?
Models help us to better organize information - to make sense of that fire hose or hairball of data (choose your metaphor) available on the Internet. Models improve our abilities to make accurate forecasts. They help us make better decisions and adopt more effective strategies. They even can improve our ability to design institutions and procedures.
In this class, I present a starter kit of models:
* models of tipping points.
* models explain the wisdom of crowds,
* models that show why some countries are rich and some are poor,
* and models that help unpack the strategic decisions of firm and politicians.
The models covered in this class provide a foundation for future social science classes, whether they be in economics, political science, business, or sociology. Mastering this material will give you a huge leg up in advanced courses.
I specially like this one..... "They also help you in life."
