The Numbers Game offers an interesting way to think about numbers and statistics and how they apply to our everyday lives. It also offers different ways of thinking about and understanding people's behaviors in social situations. Meanwhile, the various questions and interactive games in each episode give viewers the chance to test some of Porway's statements.

It's fun, but what makes it educational is the host's ability to demystify the function of statistics, breaking down the numbers-driven science into something both visual and understandable. It also demonstrates firsthand how statistics can be applied to understanding social behaviors to change them for the better. Most importantly, it shows how math and science play a major role in our lives, whether we realize it or not.
