  Learning Objectives
  Recap of past learning
  I want to go a travelling (Bridges of Koenigsberg)
  How many ways are there of doing this?
  Making the problem simpler!
  The language of graphs
  Euler was a clever dude ...
  Euler noticed something ...
  When the degrees are all odd ...

This is the first video in a new series looking at Graph Theory for the Year 11 General Maths course. I look at the Bridges of Konigsberg problem and how Euler found the connection between odd vertices and not being able to travel along a graphs edges. I look at what a vertex and edge are and how to find the degree of a vertex. This is all done with an excellent explanation and some stories and humour thrown in for free!
