NCTM 2011: Mathematics of Game Shows slides

At NCTM 2011, attendees learned some mathematics while vying to win a selection of fine cheeses and a copy of Slumdog Millionaire.  This talk addressed the math problems that arise around game shows, especially those of interest to the producers of the show and not just the contestants.

Here are the slides for the talk.  What games and problems should be part of the next one?
