What does a game look like that utilizes graph theory?
Graph theory is a very creative and visually appealing branch of mathematics, but is it fun? Is it even fair? Your task this week is to take your chosen game and determine how graph theory plays a part in this game.*
- How is it implemented? Does it add meaning to the game? Is it fair for all players involved?
- Is the implementation obvious, or is it more about what’s going on in the “background” of the game? You might want to refer back to your discussion on sets because these ideas often carry over into graph building.
Make sure that you are clearly communicate your ideas and that you are specific in your details.
*If it feels like too much of a stretch for graph theory to be a part of your chosen game, think hard on this because you’d be surprised how many games can utilize it.
