Scientific American article about probability and medicine

Here’s an article from Scientific American which gives a great review of the material we covered in class yesterday (Unit 3.3) in the context of medical testing.


The reference is
Gigerenzer, Gerd and others. April 2009. “Knowing Your Chances: What Health Stats Really Mean.” Scientific American,   44–53.

The notes for section 3.3 have some quotations from Gigerenzer’s book which is related to this article.
