On learning central there are 9 online quizzes available to you.
You can submit as many times as you want.
Write a Jupyter notebook demonstrating your understanding of the use of Python for the study of the game theoretic topics covered in this module.
The target audience: students on this course.
Marking: The grades for this coursework will be marked on a piecewise linear curve to ensure approximately a third of the class have a grade above \(70%\) and resulting in a mean of \(60\pm \frac{25}{\sqrt{n}}\) (where \(n\) is the number of students in the class). For example, with a class of size \(n=80\) the mean mark will fall within the range \(60 \pm 2.8\).
Carry out a group research project using Game Theory. This can either be a theoretical exploration of a topic of Game Theory or an applied problem: investigating some interactive process using the tools of the course.
You will evidence your progress with 2 mediums:
Your final submission should include the following 3 files:
main.pdf
file: the pdf file for a 2 page paper written in LaTeX.presentation.mp4
(or similar file format): the video recording of your 15 minute presentationcontribution.md
file: a file describing the contributions of every member of your group.Examples of presentations are available at: vknight.org/pop/

03/21/23: Discussing the individual coursework
In class today we discussed the individual coursework. I did my best to take all questions and ensure everyone understood what each question is asking for.
On Friday you spent some time filling in the mid module feedback for Game Theory. Here I will go over some of the recurring points raised.
In today’s class we spoke about a deadline for the individual coursework but spent most of our time taking the initial steps that a research project would take to model gift giving for Valentines day.
