COURSE DETAILS:
Instructor's Objectives
This course is an introduction to mathematical reasoning underlying much of computer science: discrete mathematics. We will cover mathematical logic (both propositional and predicate) and proof techniques (including induction), counting principles, and a variety of discrete structures, with Computer Science applications.
Topics
 Propositional logic
 Predicate logic
 Basic proof techniques
 Sets, functions and relations, including growth of functions
 Mathematical induction and its variants
 Recursive definitions and structural induction
 Counting principles
 Basic probability
Grading
NOTES:
A combination of assignments, midterms, tutorial quizzes and a final exam. Details to be discussed at the start of the semester.
Students must attain an overall passing grade on the weighted average of exams in the course in order to obtain a clear pass (C or better).

Registrar Notes:
SFU’s Academic Integrity web site http://www.sfu.ca/students/academicintegrity.html is filled with information on what is meant by academic dishonesty, where you can find resources to help with your studies and the consequences of cheating. Check out the site for more information and videos that help explain the issues in plain English.
Each student is responsible for his or her conduct as it affects the University community. Academic dishonesty, in whatever form, is ultimately destructive of the values of the University. Furthermore, it is unfair and discouraging to the majority of students who pursue their studies honestly. Scholarly integrity is required of all members of the University. http://www.sfu.ca/policies/gazette/student/s1001.html
