The Knight's Tour - graphs, algorithms, abstraction and decomposition

Mark Clarkson, Egglescliffe School

Description

Exploring algorithmic problems from different perspectives can help to open up the world of computational thinking and introduce topics in a way that makes them much less scary. During the session we will explore what we mean by decomposition, abstraction and generalisation as well as taking a KS3/4-friendly look at graph theory and algorithms.
