Coloring Maps and Related Problems

Chris K. Caldwell © 1995

This is one of a series of interactive tutorials introducing the basic concepts of graph theory.  This six page tutorial introduces coloring problems as well as one of the most famous theorems in mathematics: The Four Color Theorem.

Most of the pages of these tutorials require that you pass a quiz before continuing to the next page, while others ask for a written comment.  To keep track of your progress we ask that you first register for this course by selecting the [REGISTER] button below (press [help] for more information).  After you are registered, you will be able to start this tutorial, moving back and forth in it using the buttons on the bottom of each page.  If you are already registered, you may continue where you left off by again pressing the [REGISTER] button (and then re-entering your name and password).
