Students explore pursuit evasion. In this secondary mathematics lesson, students investigate the minimum number of searchers, the search number, necessary to trap a fugitive. The activity encourages students to find patterns in the properties of graphs that affect the search number. The lesson extension provides students an opportunity to form a proof of the algorithm for each type of graph.
