Mathematics of Game Shows, Plus!

Thanks to everyone who came out at 8 am on Thursday morning for “Mathematics of Game Shows, Plus”, the second installment of everyone’s favorite game-show-math-analysis talk.

The slides are here.  In particular, read about “Shell Game”.  The next post here will be an analysis and proof of the general case for that game.  Oh, and if you haven’t seen it yet, here are the slides from last year’s talk, with different games.

It was terrific seeing so many people at NCTM, new and old friends.  Best wishes for the rest of the school year.
