**Game Theory: Lost in New York** 2006.

41 min. Originally broadcast on March 16, 2006 as a segment of: Primetime Live. Six pairs of people are deposited in separate locations all over New York City and ordered to find each other -- without being told where to look.

Incorporating principles from the mathematical discipline known as game theory the program shows how envisioning the plans and intentions of others, when utilizing the scantiest of evidence and the most basic inferences, can produce a viable strategy.

Maximizing Profits: A class is divided into small groups to discuss problem-solving strategies, such as finding a verbal model, assigning labels, and writing an algebraic model based on maximizing profit on sales of necklaces and bracelets. 16. Conjectures Through Graphing: Students work in groups to solve four problems on derivatives of exponential functions. 17. Problem Solving: Excerpts from 10 classrooms where students are learning mathematics through problem solving. Teachers use multilayered tasks to engage students in making conjectures, constructing meaning, and developing strategies. 18. Communication: Excerpts of seven classrooms demonstrate communication about mathematical ideas in a range of formats, including whole-class discussions, small groups, writing, and student presentations. 19. Reasoning: Excerpts of seven classrooms show students reasoning about mathematical ideas in whole-class discussions, small group work, and class presentations.
20. Connections: In excerpts from eight classrooms, students make connections within mathematics, to other disciplines, and to situations in the real world.
