Graph Theory: Modeling RealWorld Problems with Graphs for K12 Students  
Graph Theory is an area of mathematics with its origins in recreational problems (i.e., puzzles and games) but which is also used as a tool to solve practical problems in many areas of society. It has the advantage of being accessible to students with a wide variety of backgrounds and is an excellent source of enrichment material in K12 classrooms. In this twoday seminar, we will study graph theory using a handson approach with many models and activities. We will explore questions such as the following: What is the minimum number of colors needed to color a map so that regions sharing a border get different colors? In what situations can you match workers to jobs so that each worker gets a job they like?
