Text. "Discrete Mathematics & Its Applications"
by Kenneth H. Rosen, McGraw Hill, New York, 2012 (7th edition)
This is a semester-long rigorous undergraduate course in discrete mathematics.
In addition to learning how one forms logically-correct,
rational mathematical arguments [i.e., "proofs"],
we will also learn a little bit about naive set theory & logic, number theory & cryptography,
and naive probability & enumerative combinatorics
Final grade will be based on a combination of assigned homework, and 3 exams.
The course grade will depend on the students' performance, creativity,
and depth of understanding. Homework is assigned fairly regularly and can
be accessed by clicking on the "Assignments" link below.
|Exam 1||June 10||8:45 a.m.-9:45 a.m., LCB 225|
|Exam 2||July 22||8:45 a.m.-9:45 a.m., LCB 225|
|Final Exam||August 7||7:30 a.m.-9:30 a.m., LCB 225|
Good advice on how to learn mathematics can be found
in a fine article by the Math. Department Chairman, Peter Trapa. That is,
if you read the article carefully and with thought.
