In this paper we present an experimental teaching activity conduced in some primary, middle and high schools in Sicily. The activity concerned several topics of graph theory. Here we highlight, in particular, the approach to teaching Eulerian graphs. The aim of the whole project was to present a fun, easy approach to mathematics and some connections of mathematics with real life, in order to reach competencies related to the use of graphs in mathematical models to solve problems.

Abstract

In this paper we present an experimental teaching activity conduced in some primary, middle and high schools in Sicily. The activity concerned several topics of graph theory. Here we highlight, in particular, the approach to teaching Eulerian graphs. The aim of the whole project was to present a fun, easy approach to mathematics and some connections of mathematics with real life, in order to reach competencies related to the use of graphs in mathematical models to solve problems.
