Textbook

Discrete Mathematics and its Applications (8th edition) by Kenneth H. Rosen (Note you are welcome to use the 7th edition as well)

Topics Covered

We will cover much of chapters 1-6, 8, 10 of the text. Among the topics we will study are set theory, formal logic, algorithms and their complexity, elementary number theory, induction, counting, recurrence relations, and graph theory. See course schedule for details.

TA office hours

In addition to instructor office hours, our TAs will also hold office hours where you can ask any questions related to the course material. Office hours can be especially useful if you take the initiative by identifying topics that are giving you trouble and formulate some questions based on this beforehand.

Zoom IDs will be posted on Blackboard.
