Course Description: Discrete mathematics includes those areas of mathematics that are essential to computer science, information theory, combinatorics, and genetics. This course emphasizes creative problem solving, linking language to logic, and learning to read and write proofs. The topics covered include propositional logic, predicate logic, inductive proof, sets, relations, functions, introductory combinatorics and discrete probability. Applications drawn from computation will motivate most topics.

Prerequisite: Mathematics 141 or programming experience.
