Plenary Lecture:

Constructing Knowledge in Graph Theory and
Combinatorial Optimization

Associate Professor Eva Milkova
Department of Informatics and Quantitative Methods
University of Hradec Kralove
Rokitanskeho 62
Czech Republic
E-mail: eva.milkova@uhk.cz

Abstract: Graph Theory and Combinatorial Optimization are powerful tools for teachers allowing them to develop logical thinking of students, increasing their imagination and meeting them familiar with solving various practical problems. The paper offers some ideas how to make the education of these branches of applied mathematics and computer science attractive for students. The approach used for teaching and learning these subjects can serve as an inspiration for education of other subjects as well.
The areas described in detail will be:
-Puzzles as a useful motivation
-Teaching in contexts
-Demonstration and visualization of the particular issue
-Intensification of students' self-preparation
