Official Course Description
Introduces the ideas of rigor and proof through an examination of basic set theory, quantification theory, elementary counting, discrete probability, and additional topics. Prereq., MATH 1300 or APPM 1350.
My Unofficial Course Description
This course covers the basic definitions of higher mathematics: sets, functions, and relations, and selected topics such as counting and graph theory. But the real focus is on mathematical literacy: the reading, and writing of mathematical definition and proof, and the indoctrination of the student into the culture of higher mathematics.
My Policy on Influenza
Please keep in mind that flu is potentially life-threatening to the very old, very young, and immune-compromised. Please stay home if you are feverish or have a flu and may be contagious, and I will help you catch up.
