    Course Description

    This is an introductory course in Discrete Mathematics oriented toward Computer Science and Engineering. The course divides roughly into thirds:
    1. Fundamental Concepts of Mathematics: Definitions, Proofs, Sets, Functions, Relations
    2. Discrete Structures: Modular Arithmetic, Graphs, State Machines, Counting
    3. Discrete Probability Theory
    A version of this course from a previous term was also taught as part of the Singapore-MIT Alliance (SMA) programme as course number SMA 5512 (Mathematics for Computer Science).

    *Some translations represent previous versions of courses.
