Abstract

After recognizing the beauty and the utility of Graph Theory in solving a variety of problems, the author decided that it would be a good idea to make the subject available for students earlier in their educational experience. In this thesis, the author developed four units in Graph Theory, namely Vertex Coloring, Minimum Spanning Tree, Domination, and Hamiltonian Paths and Cycles, which are appropriate for high school level.
