Rosen, McGraw Hill, New York, 2012 (7th edition)**Course description.**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**Grading.**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.
