Exploring
the FourColor Theorem


 
In this activity students will explore the FourColor Theorem by coloring various maps in MicroWorlds. Mathematics: Students will investigate the original FourColor Theorem and a modified version. Mathematical Thinking: This activity will engage students in reasoning, conjecturing, problem solving, and synthesizing of findings. Technology: Students will color a builtin map in MicroWorlds and will import and color maps from various websites. Sample Screen Shot:
