C3540: The World of Game Theory in Sprout Spring 19 (Feb. 16 - Mar. 02, 2019)
Should two suspects of a serious crime both stay silent or confess? If one person wants to go to see a movie, and the other wants to go to a concert, where should each go? Believe it or not, these real-world problems can be solved using simple math and strategy! The process by which these problems are solved is called Game Theory. Each of the games we will study has at least two players and can be anything from video games to competitions with friends. If you are interested in learning how to beat your opponents with the power of your very own mind, sign up for The World of Game Theory!
