MAT-270 Discrete Mathematics

Provides tools for formal reasoning with a particular focus on applications in computer science, although no knowledge of programming is required. Topics include counting rules, propositional and first-order logic, set theory, functions (with an emphasis on recursive functions), partial order and equivalence relations, Boolean algebra, switching circuits, and graphs and trees.

Advisory: It is advisable to have knowledge in a course equivalent to MAT-121 College Algebra with a grade of C or better to succeed in this course. Students are responsible for making sure that they have the necessary knowledge.
