Using a blend of live online teaching and prerecorded video lessons by the faculty, this summer Discrete Mathematics course will cover standard topics in discrete mathematics, including: logic and proof, sets, relations, and functions, combinatorics, basic probability, and graph theory. Along the way, we'll focus on skills and techniques for problem-solving. This is an excellent class for teachers and future teachers, people wanting to broaden their mathematical experience beyond algebra, and students considering advanced study in mathematics and/or computer science.

Students will have access to live and interactive lessons with the faculty and can also watch faculty-developed videos as needed or as they are able. Online small group work will also be a regular part of the work of the program. The faculty will be available for online office hours and one-on-one virtual support. Students are encouraged to have reliable internet access and the use of a camera-enabled device.
Our work will be conducted remotely, using Canvas and Zoom. The faculty will work with students to make alternative arrangements, allowing students to earn comparable credit, if conditions prevent students from accessing our synchronous meetings.
