All the Math you need for your Computer Science courses

that you won’t learn in your Math Courses

Discrete Mathematics for Computer Science


Some Topics

b

a

c

d

f

Formal logic (p∨q) ∧¬(p∧q)

Graphs and digraphs

Probability

Counting

Number theory p ≡ qr (mod m)

… see the “placement test” on the web site


Skills!!!

  • How to do proofs

    • By contradiction

    • By induction

  • How to read and write mathematics

    • And typeset!

  • How to collaborate

  • How to present clearly and persuasively


3 Principles of Course Philosophy

Learning, not competing

Learn by doing, not by listening

Many small bites


Typical Class Day

  • Before class:

    • Reading and check-in problems (30-60 mins)

  • In class

    • Mini-lecture (10-20 mins)

    • Collaborative problem solving in groups of 4 (30-40 mins)

  • After class and before next class

    • Homework (60-90 mins)

  • So class week =

    • 3 hours class time

    • ≤ 7.5 hours out-of-class time

  • Most readings from MIT course notes


Requirements

  • Attendance is mandatory!

    • See “Course policies” for details

    • Official/emergency absences ⇒ email [email protected]

    • Class begins at 10:10 sharp

    • Homework boxes removed at 10:15, no late submissions

  • 2 hour exams

  • 3-hour final during exam period


Tentative Grading Mix

Homework35%

Midterms (2)30%

Final exam25%

Check-in questions10%

(Poor attendance: Exclusion or failure)


Support and Resources

  • Web site

    • Where schedule, HWs, slides, etc. are posted

  • TFs

    • See calendar on web site for office hours

  • Volunteers

  • Piazza (after study card day)

  • Tool for answering check-in questions (see course home page and get an account!)

  • Reading assignments and check-in questions are on the check-in tool


And now – the course in action!
