### Text Book

The text for the course is Rosen, **
Discrete Mathematics and Its Applications**. The ** Third Edition** of the
text will be used. The publisher has just released the Fourth Edition of
the text, but we will stick with the older edition.

### Grading:

The course grade will be based on homework,
a midterm, and a final exam. The approximate weighting of the three components
is 40-50% Homework, 15-25% midterm and 30-40% final exam.

### Homework:

Homework is intended to be a major portion of the course.
Assignments will be due weekly, usually on Wednesday. It is expected that
homework solutions represent original work.

### Topics:

Chapters 1-7 will be covered. The main topics will
be logic (1.1-1.3), the integers (2.3), methods of proof (3.1-3.3),
counting and probability (4.1-4.5), relations (6.1-6.4), and
graph theory (7.1-7.5,7.7-7.8).

### Midterm
