#3350 Discrete Mathematics


Year, 1 Credit, 1 Period

Prerequisites: Passing grade in the Advanced Algebra or Precalculus course or departmental approval

Recommended for: Grade 12 only

Description: Discrete Mathematics is a rapidly growing and increasingly used branch of mathematics with many practical and relevant applications. It deals with complex problem- solving in a variety of fields ranging from networking and telecommunications to cryptanalysis, social choice theory, statistics, and operations research. Topics will be introduced and studied from the standpoint of numerical analysis, algebraic manipulation skills, geometrical/graphical interpretation, and through the written word. Computer usage is an integral part of the course. Working with spreadsheets and other math programs enables each student to analyze the course material and arrive at his/her own conclusions with sufficient justification.
