  • Discovering Euler Circuits and Paths through a Culturally Relevant Lesson

    Rebecca Robichaux, Paulette Rodrigue
    A middle school DISCRETE MATHEMATICS lesson that uses the context of catching crawfish to provide students with a hands-on experience related to Euler circuits and paths. The lesson promotes mathematical communication through the use of cooperative learning as well as connections between mathematics and the real world through the use of this context and discussions of other similar contexts. Sample questions and answers for worksheets are included.
