Course description and textbook
As the title Introduction to Discrete Mathematics suggests, Math 240 is a course on the fundamentals of discrete (as opposed to continuous) mathematics. The course is a foundational math course and is meant to be taken early. You will be introduced to many new concepts and topics, and we shall not spend a long time on any one of them. 
We will use the textbook by Kenneth H. Rosen, Discrete Mathematics and its Applications, seventh Edition, ISBN 9780073383095.
We will cover the following topics:

D2L and Piazza
Grades will be posted on the Desire to Learn (D2L) webpage
This term we will be using Piazza for class discussion. The system is highly catered to getting you help fast and efficiently from classmates, the TA, and myself. Rather than emailing questions to the teaching staff, I encourage you to post your questions on Piazza. Find our class page here. 
Exams and evaluation
There will be two midterms and one final exam. Your final grade will be determined using the formula:
Midterm 1:  Chapter 1, Chapter 2, Sections 3.1, 3.2.  February 28th (7:15PM to 8:45PM) Social Sciences 5206 
Practice exam  Solutions  
Midterm 2:  Sections 3.3, 4.14.4, 5.15.4, 6.16.3  April 11th (7:15PM to 8:45PM) Social Sciences 5206 
Instead of a practice exam  Sect 3.3: 3, 4; Sect 4.1: 37, 43; Sect 4.2: 2, 21;  
solve the following problems:  Sect 4.3: 24, 26, 33; Sect 4.4: 5, 9, 11, 21;  
Sect 5.1: 18, 34, 51; Sect 5.2: 3, 25; Sect 5.3: 26, 29;  
Sect 6.1: 24, 25, 33, 63; Sect 6.2: 4, 16; Sect 6.3: 11, 21, 25  
Midterm 2 Solutions  
Final:  May 9th (5:05PM—7:05PM) INGRAHAM 19 
The final will be on all of the material that we learned in this course. It will consist of 10 multiple choice questions, 10 True/False questions and 4 problems. The 4 problems will focus on the material that we have not yet tested in the first two midterms, but there might be a problem on old material as well. To practice for the final, review slides, homework assignments, practice exam for midterm 1, the review questions for midterm 2 and the two midterms. In addition, here is a list of problems to help you practice for the final sections: Sect 6.4 Ex 7, Ex 31; Sect 6.5 Ex 9, Ex 15; Sect 7.1 Ex 35, Ex 37; Sect 9.1 Ex 46, Ex 49; Sect 9.3 Ex 13, Ex 21; Sect 9.4 Ex 11, Ex 25; Sect 9.5 Ex 25. Ex 29. Ex 49; Sect 9.6 Ex 7, Ex 33, Ex 39; Sect 10.1 Ex 13; Sect 10.2 Ex 5, Ex 35; Sect 10.3 Ex 57, Ex 67; Ex 10.4 Ex 17; Ex 19, Sect 11.1 Ex 17, Ex 47;
The scores will be curved. The curve for the course grade will NOT be determined until after the final exam. You will need to participate in the final to pass the class. The time and location of the final are set by the university and cannot be changed. Do NOT make arrangements to leave town until after the final time.
Homework
Every Friday you will receive a new homework assignment. Homework will be due the following Friday at the beginning of class. Late homework will not be accepted, except in case of illness or family emergency.
Homework will be graded for completeness and three problems (selected at random) will be graded for correctness.
Your solution should not be just a sequence of equations and formulas, write in complete sentences.
It is okay, even encouraged, if you work on the homeworks in groups. If you do, please acknowledge that in your homework. The solutions you submit, have to be written by each student individually. Copying is not allowed and will be acted against.
