Emily Witchell takes a creative, hands-on approach to the discrete mathematics option with her class at Dartford Grammar School. She builds her students’ understanding of Dijkstra’s algorithm with several differentiated activities that include a mixture of individual and paired work; the lesson then culminates with a competition between small groups to recreate a graph—using cupcakes and icing—and complete a challenging question.
