Topic: Königsberg Bridge Problem
Description: Come join us for a virtual trip to Könisberg. In Könisberg, we can only draw pictures where we don't pick up our pencil and can't retrace our path. We will explore what pictures we can and cannot draw under these constraints. We will investigate a classical mathematical problem, the Könisberg bridge problem, and see how to solve these problems using graph theory. Come join us for a virtual Julia Robinson Math Festival where we'll get to think creatively and dive into a fun problem!
