Many journalists have a mild allergy to math and money. But numeracy is a necessary tool for reporting on our financial and increasingly data-driven culture. Whether you want to learn to write quick news hits for the business section, add a financial lens to your investigative stories, or step-up your government reporting, this class with editor and journalist Max Fawcett will cover how to avoid the most common pitfalls and better understand the bewildering world of money and finance. He might even be able to demonstrate that math and money can, in fact, be fun. If nothing else, you’ll leave a more well-rounded writer.
