Finan - Arkansas Tech University , 2001 This book is designed for a one semester course in discrete mathematics for sophomore or junior level students. Series Title: Responsibility: Oscar Levin. Along the way proofs are introduced, including proofs by contradiction, proofs by induction, and combinatorial proofs. This course serves both as an i Note, this is the corrected Fall 2015 edition. Today we introduce set theory, elements, and how to build sets. Introduction and Preliminaries -- 1.

Details: Mode of access: World Wide Web. The textbook has been developed while teaching the Discrete Mathematics course at the University of Northern Colorado. It is written to be used in a course for future math teachers. Symbolic Logic and Proofs -- 4.

The book contains 299 exercises, all with solutions or at least a hint , as well as 45 additional more involved problems suitable for homework. We will survey topics in computer arithmetic and data representation, logic and set theory, graph theory and computer measurement.

When I teach the class, I will assign sections for reading after first introducing them in class by using a mix of group work and class discussion on a few interesting problems. The text began as a set of lecture notes for the discrete mathematics course at the University of Northern Colorado.

This text aims to give an introduction to select topics in discrete mathematics at a level appropriate for first or second year undergraduate math majors, especially those who intend to teach middle and high school mathematics. There you can also find information about obtaining the LaTeX source code in case you want to remix the book. Four main topics are covered: counting, sequences, logic, and graph theory. Cooper - Macquarie University , 2008 This is a text on discrete mathematics. None-the-less, every attempt has been made to make the text sufficient for self study as well, in a way that hopefully mimics an inquiry based classroom. Along the way proofs are introduced, including proofs by contradiction, proofs by induction, and combinatorial proofs.

From the Book Description: Oscar Levin wrote: This gentle introduction to discrete mathematics is written for first and second year math majors, especially those who intend to teach. The prerequisites include linear algebra and computer programming. The textbook has been developed while teaching the Discrete Mathematics course at the University of Northern Colorado. This gentle introduction to discrete mathematics is written for first and second year math majors, especially those who intend to teach. I corrected many errors over Summer 2017, and recorded the consequential ones for anyone who is using an older version in the , which also contains a few errors discoverd since then.

Note, this is the corrected Fall 2015 edition. It is open source, with low cost print editions and free electronic editions. This text aims to give an introduction to select topics in discrete mathematics at a level appropriate for first or second year undergraduate math majors, especially those who intend to teach middle and high school mathematics. Symbolic Logic and Proofs -- 4. Most students who take the course plan to teach, although there are a handful of students who will go on to graduate school or study applied math or computer science. I try to answer as many questions as possible. The book contains over 360 exercises, including 230 with solutions and 130 more involved problems suitable for homework.

For these students the current text hopefully is still of interest, but the intent is not to provide a solid mathematical foundation for computer science, unlike the majority of textbooks on the subject. For this reason, most of the standard discrete textbooks are not appropriate for us. It consists of 4 units: counting and listing, functions, decision trees and recursion, and basic concepts of graph theory. Discrete Mathematics: An Open Introduction is a free, open source textbook appropriate for a first or second year undergraduate course for math majors, especially those who will go on to teach.

Discrete Mathematics: An Open Introduction is a free, open source textbook appropriate for a first or second year undergraduate course for math majors, especially those who will go on to teach. Most discrete books put logic first as a preliminary, which certainly has its advantages. Wiley , 1988 This first-year course in discrete mathematics requires no calculus or computer programming experience. The E-mail message field is required. There is also an inexpensive print edition available through.

The textbook has been developed while teaching the Discrete Mathematics course at the University of Northern Colorado. A new edition will be available August 2016 This gentle introduction to discrete mathematics is written for first and second year math majors, especially those who intend to teach. About This text was written to be used as the primary text for the class Discrete Mathematics Math 228 at the University of Northern Colorado. The text began as a set of lecture notes for the discrete mathematics course at the University of Northern Colorado. Along the way proofs are introduced, including proofs by contradiction, proofs by induction, and combinatorial proofs. The course is usually taught with a large amount of student inquiry, and this text is written to help facilitate this.
