The Konigsberg Bridge Problem This is a picture of the town of Konigsberg. (It is now called Kalliningrad and is in the Russian Federation – can you find it on a map?). There is a famous mathematical problem about the town of Konigsberg. This is the problem: Show how you can walk over all of the bridges. You must cross each one only once.
Can it be done ? Try to explain how it can be done OR why it cannot be done ! A mathematician called Leonhard Euler first solved the problem mathematically. His ideas led to the development of a branch of mathematics called topology.
