Optimal Strategy in the "Price Is Right" Showcase Showdown: A Module for Students of Calculus and Probability
Swenson, Daniel
PRIMUS, v25 n7 p578-595 2015
We walk through a module intended for undergraduates in mathematics, with the focus of finding the best strategies for competing in the Showcase Showdown on the game show "The Price Is Right." Students should have completed one semester of calculus, as well as some probability. We also give numerous suggestions for further questions that students could work on during an independent study or undergraduate research experience.
