*Math Encounters — Online*: "Game on! The Mathematics of Game Shows" with Paul Dreyer

**Wednesday, June 3 at 4:00 pm EDT (New York)**

Many game shows have a rich mathematical foundation, drawing on topics in probability, game theory, and decision theory. Join Paul Dreyer, President of the American Regions Mathematics League, in an exploration of the mathematics behind a number of shows on which he worked, including *The Wall*, *Million Second Quiz*, and *Spin the Wheel*. Some participants will also have opportunities to win prizes, because what good is a game show without prizes?

Special introduction by George Reuter, President of the NY State Math League, lecturer at SUNY Geneseo, and Regional Co-Director of the NYS Master Teacher Program.

This is a **live-streamed** event. Occasional video recordings are made available for a fee at videos.momath.org.
