We will be studying vertex-edge graphs and using them to solve a variety of special problems. The topic has few mathematical prerequisites and will be presented through activities and student presentations as well as written and oral discussions. The students will be doing the mathematics and explaining the mathematics not just listening to the instructor.
Through experiences with new and exciting mathematics problems, students will increase their ability to reason and explain mathematics, develop their problem solving skills, and learn how to incorporate discrete mathematics into K-8 classrooms.
|Discrete Mathematics for K-8 Teachers by Valerie Debellis and Joseph Rosenstein. This interactive book includes discussion, activities, and classroom guides.
Information on how to purchase this book will be available at the first class meeting.
