Discrete Mathematics

Designed to introduce students in the mathematical and computational sciences to discrete mathematical structures and to act as a transition to higher mathematics and computer science courses. Topics include an introduction to set theory, combinatorics, symbolic logic and proofs, recursion, recurrence relations, graph theory, and the theory of computation. Additional topics selected from number theory, relations, and functions. Emphasizes mathematical reasoning and proof writing. Prerequisite: MATH 131 or MATH 181.
