Citing your work

What is a game show? Who is Monty Hall?  Would you like the final answers to these and many other questions?  Then come on down as we explore the fascinating world of television game shows.

We will begin by studying the history of game shows.  Then, we will attempt to define the genre by asking questions such as, “Is The Voice a game show?” 

In addition, we will study optimal strategies of various game shows to determine the best way to win big bucks.  Students will even get a chance to create their very own game shows.
