Math 302 is a course on discrete mathematics. As described in the course catalog, we will cover formal structures for describing data, algorithms and computing devices. We will also study the theory and applications of sets and algebraic structures. More specifically, we will cover Chapters 1 (§ 1-8), 2 (§1-4), 3 (§1-2), 5 (§1-3), 6 (§1,3-5), 8 (§1-5), and 9 (§1-6) from Rosen, plus additional topics as time permits.
