GEMS Workshop: Graph Theory, Part II with Professor Michael Orrison, from Harvey Mudd College

March 2 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

- Free

TOPIC: Graph Theory, Part II

On the surface, graphs seem to be some of the simplest objects you might encounter in mathematics. After all, they are made up of just two kinds of parts, vertices and edges, and those parts fit together in simple ways. But appearances can be deceiving! In this series of two workshops, we’ll explore several surprising facts about graphs. Along the way, we’ll see how graphs arise in a variety of settings, and how they give rise to many challenging but worthwhile problems.

WHAT IS GEMS:

The Gateway to Exploring Mathematics program (GEMS) is a series of workshops that helps excite the interests and curiosity of young students in mathematics and science

GEMS meets once a month on a Saturday morning from 10:00 AM to 12:00 PM

GEMS is designed to reach 8th, 9th and 10th grade students who have an interest in mathematics and science

Participants interact with excellent and award winning faculty, staff, students and alumni from each of the seven Claremont Colleges
