Description

Graph theory is an area of mathematics often not encountered before college, and not always even there. Nonetheless, it is full of problems that novices can quickly understand and begin to figure out. Often, sixty seconds of introduction to such a problem can lead to literally an hour of discussion as students engage in finding solutions. In this presentation, I will offer some sample problems and discuss how to use them with students in middle or high school.
