This course will cover standard topics in discrete mathematics, including: logic and proof, sets, 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.

This course will be fully remote/online; our work will be conducted using Canvas and Zoom. Students will be expected to attend live, interactive sessions with program faculty and peers. Online small group work will also be a regular part of the work of the program. To successfully participate, students are required to have a reliable internet connection and regular access to a computer. Students should expect to spend up to 9 hours per week in synchronous meetings using Zoom. Our approach will emphasize participation in synchronous (live) sessions; however, if students find themselves unable to participate due to technology issues, caregiving obligations, economic disruption, health risk, or illness, they can work with faculty to pursue alternate options to earn related credit.
