M3406: Probability Puzzles in Splash Fall 2018 (Oct. 27, 2018)
This class will be about probability puzzles and math games, starting with the Monty Hall Problem. Students will debate the question first on their own, then we will discuss it together and learn about probability. If we have time, we will discuss other probability questions, math games, and game theory. I will be teaching with my friend Jamie Nachbar '22.
