Not Simple[change source]

This article isn't very simple. I do not think a fourth grader would be clearly able to understand this article. Should we clean up the article? (talk) 12:36, 29 August 2014 (UTC)

Many pages on this wiki could be simplified further. However, I don't agree that all concepts in advanced mathematics can be made simple enough for a fourth-grader. I think this page is not bad, but if someone thinks they can do better, they're welcome to try. Always remember, though, the article still has to be accurate: this is an encyclopedia.

I do not think there is much room to improve the general descriptions, without sacrificing scientific accuracy I think in its current state a decent math teacher should be able to explain the subject (to the forth graders), given the description we provide; in that respect, many subjects of graph theory are very accessible. --Eptalon (talk) 14:55, 29 August 2014 (UTC)
