Coloring, Creative Math, and Computers
What started as a puzzle for map makers turned into a famous mathematical problem that went unsolved for over 150 years, until a computer solved it. As participants solve this problem by coloring in a map of the U.S., they will get familiar with a fun and different area of math often not taught in school: graph theory. From sudoku puzzles to GPS navigation, this math powers some of the most exciting computer programs in use today.
