The puzzle in the picture has three solutions. Can you try to find all of the solutions? (hint: try starting on one color and finding a comple
We can solve the 3x3 problem by stacking all of the cups in the middle. On the 5x5 problem, we can solve it similarly by focusing on the corners than the center lines. Can you find a way to apply this to the 7x7 and 9x9 problems? (Hint: on the 9x9 problem, solving the corners will leave leftovers. H
In class, we started with the classic Königsberg problem of drawing a shape with 1 continuous line. The shape is made up of nods and lines connected to them, you could go over the nods multiple times but only once for the lines. We practiced numerous questions before explaining how to identify wheth
In class, we talked about how the Tower of Hanoi is based on recursive relations. We also found the recursive relation for the Tower of Hanoi with three pegs. We then explored the Tower of Hanoi with two rings of each color, four pegs, and five pegs. We ended by exploring the Tower of Hanoi with col

In class, we started with the classic river crossing problem of a wolf, a goat, and a cabbage. We then moved on to a variation in which we need to carry humans and zombies instead. Remember, if there are more zombies than humans on any side of the river, all of the humans on that side will die. How
