Abstract

Gaming is a pastime for most of the population and is something that is very easy to relate to for students. It is a rich mathematical environment where students can explore and learn algebra and probability. Today we will examine several lessons set in the gaming environment of zero-sum games. We are going to look at the algebra and probability behind them as a way to show some of the real world applications of mathematics; as well as show where it can be used and integrated into a high school mathematics curriculum.
