MATH 211 Discrete Mathematics
An introduction to fundamental mathematical concepts used in mathematics as well as computer science, with an emphasis on writing mathematical arguments. The course presents the principles of mathematical logic and methods of proof such as direct and indirect proofs and mathematical induction. Other topics include sets, functions, relations, matrix algebra, and techniques from elementary combinatorics and graph theory. Prerequisite: 170 or COMP 131 or departmental placement. This course fulfills the WID graduation requirement. Offered every semester.
