Syllabus | *This course will be conducted remotely and will be online only for Autumn 2020* On completion of the course, students will be practiced in using mathematical concepts and techniques to solve problems, and in expressing mathematical notions precisely. They will be able to use ideas and techniques from discrete mathematics in subsequent courses in computer science, in particular courses in the design and analysis of algorithms, networks, numerical methods, software engineering, data analysis, and machine learning. Course Contents Requirements • Lectures: Students are responsible for all material presented in lectures. • Homework: Weekly homework assignments are assigned after class and are due at the start of the next class. Students are required to submit homework electronically. • Exams: There is a midterm exam (week 6), and a final exam (week 11). There will be no make-up exams.
