PRIMUS, Probl. Resour. Issues Math. Undergrad. Stud. 25, No. 7, 578-595 (2015).
Summary: 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.
