Recurring Decimals Investigation

Recurring Decimals Investigation

Maths Puzzles: Graph Theory (Networks and Maps)

Maths Puzzles: Graph Theory (Networks and Maps)

These resources is a set of games, puzzles and worksheets which provide a basic introduction to the mathematical topic of graph theory, which has many real-life applications but isn’t often covered in maths in school, so this resource would provide for interesting extension tasks for secondary school pupils and older Primary school pupils. Graph theory has real-life applications to the maths of maps and network diagrams; and in this resource there is also a very topical activity applying graph theory to the spread of a global virus. Further activities are themed around transport networks and city maps.
