BACKGROUND

The goal of these coloring games is to help students experience a mathematics problem, and understand its difficulties while achieving partial solutions. This process is at the root of mathematical and scientific reasoning, and the aim of this software is to help develop this skill.

Concrete mathematical and computer science problems from graph theory. have been chosen and transformed into coloring games. The computer offers appealing tools for drawing and coloring, and is also used to provide immediate feedback to individual students reflecting their particular level of achievement. Throughout the course of each game, the computer checks for mistakes and simple algorithms have been programmed to challenge the students to improve on their results.
