A didactically interesting question is how to familiarize lower secondary school children with abstract modelling tools – especially graphs – and how problem-solving paradigms can be developed in their minds while using the structure of graphs and the operations defined on them. In this paper, we make an overview of introducing graph models and basic graph algorithms to lower-secondary-school-age pupils and to older students, who are new to programming.
