Welcome to the 57th Annual Northwest Mathematics Conference!
We are really excited to offer a rich program for teachers across all grade levels.

Please note: This app is a convenient way for you to plan which sessions you want to attend. Despite the app saying "Reserved Sessions", no session has reserved space. All sessions are on a first-come first-served basis. Most of our meeting rooms are very large so we are hopeful that you will get into the sessions you would like to. In the rare case that a session is full, we are confident that there are other excellent options for you to attend.

Optimally Scheduling Classes and Exams using Graph Theory

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.
In this informal and interactive workshop, we'll look at a simple puzzle and solve it in an elegant way: using dots, lines, and colours! We'll then explore the applications of this solution to optimally scheduling courses and exams. I'll end the talk by presenting a project that I completed with a Grade 11 student in Vancouver, where we developed an optimal exam schedule for his high school.
