Author:Ivars Peterson (MathTrek)
Description: More than 200 mathematicians and students showed up on a Thursday evening to participate in The Number Years, a featured event at the Joint Mathematics Meetings held earlier this month (January, 2000) in Washington, D.C. The Number Years started out as a classroom activity designed to bring a sense of fun to learning the history of mathematics. It gradually evolved into a game-show format and now has its own Web site. The goal is to build up a database of mathematical game-show questions that instructors can tailor for use in their own classrooms. Peterson has adapted some of the questions for a quiz incorporated into this article, with answers.
