Facebook is a popular social network which allows people to connect to long lost friends.

We will be using technology to support nearly all of our activities. This site is built to provide us with modern tools to facilitate communication and collaboration. Each person in this class will have a blog, have the ability to collaboratively author content in this space, and will be asked to contribute to the overall content basis on the course itself. The course is about the emergence of the read/write web and the space not only supports that idea but promotes it. Every piece of content at the Course Site can be commented on and quickly changed. Part of our collective responsibility is to leave behind evidence of our activities here so the world can see.

This video lesson will introduce students to algorithmic thinking through the use of a popular field in graph theory—social networking. Specifically, by acting as nodes in a graph (i.e. people in a social network), the students will experientially gain an understanding of graph theory terminology and distance in a graph (i.e. number of introductions required to meet a target person). Once the idea of distance in a graph has been built, the students will discover Dijkstra's Algorithm. The lesson should take approximately 90 minutes and can be comfortably partitioned across two class sessions if necessary (see the note in the accompanying Teacher Guide). There are no special supplies needed for this class and all necessary hand-outs can be downloaded from this website.
