Abstract: The Athena logic software packages are designed to improve on the teaching of rough reasoning procedures. Often, human actors, experts and decision makers have access only to low quality data and fallible indicators, guiding their judgment. In such situations, rough reasoning procedures will achieve better results than more elaborate reasoning procedures. Athena supports the development of rough reasoning skills via an apprenticeship method. Teaching of rough reasoning procedures can benefit from software supported apprenticeship method, integrating software use with educational games.
