MODULE DESCRIPTION:

Many decisions in life surround one of two possible alternatives (e.g. the object on the x-ray is a tumor or it is not) and two possible choices (e.g. have the painful surgery or do chemotherapy). In this experiment students explore the tradeoffs that can occur when trying to detect a known signal.
