Linear Programming (LP) is a very popular/important topic, with very broad/real-world Engineering/Economic, and Social Science applications. In addition to Operation Research, LP course has been offered in most (if not all) engineering curriculum in the USA. Teaching LP topic, however, may not be an easy task, especially at the undergraduate, and/or even at the high-school levels. Through simple Head-Tail (Tossing Coin) game strategies, and coupling with graphical and Simplex methods, the authors hope that the formulation and optimal solution for LP problem can be easily understood even by high-school students.
