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.


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 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.


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).


Friday Feb. 5, in class. Closed book, no notes, no calculators. Sample questions from old midterm (postscript), 1998 midterm (postscript).

Final Exam

Tuesday, March 16, 2:30-4:20 pm, in class. Closed book, no notes, no calculators.
