How Bob Barker Would (Probably) Teach Discrete Mathematics
Urness, Timothy
PRIMUS, v20 n6 p550-561 2010
This article proposes a discrete mathematics course in which games from "The Price Is Right" are used to engage students in a deeper, practical study of discrete mathematics. The games themselves are not the focus of the course; rather, the mathematical principles of the games give motivation for the concepts being taught. The game examples are designed to be an alternative to traditional textbook problems and used as active exercises throughout the course. (Contains 3 figures and 1 table.)
