MATERIAL COVERED The course will cover selected topics in chapters 1 through 5. The topics to be covered from each chapter are: 1. Logic, Sets and Functions: connectives, truth tables, laws of logic, quantifiers, predicates, function. 2. Algorithms, Integers and Matrices: algorithms, complexity of algorithms, integers, number theory. 3. Mathematical Reasoning and Recursion: proofs, math induction, recursive algorithms. 4. Counting: permutations, combinations, combinations with repetition, the binomial theorem. 5. Discrete Probability: probability theory, expected value and variance. COURSE ABET OBJECTIVES: The ABET objectives for this course are:

GRADING: The three exams and homework assignments will determine grades. The final grade will be composed as follows: • • • • Exam 1 30% Exam 2 30% Exam 3 30% Homework assignments 10%

Letter grades will be assigned as given below. I reserve the right to make the grading scale easier than given here. 96-100 91-95 88-90 85-87 80-84 75-79 70-74 65-69 60-64 56-59 53-55 50-52 Below 50

Assignments are due in class every Monday, or Wednesday if Monday is Holiday/no class day. No late submissions will be accepted. Do, and submit, your own work. Copied assignments will result in 0 marks for all concerned. Regular class attendance and participation is expected and is the responsibility of each individual. There is a strong correlation between regular class attendance and good performance. Should you elect not to attend a class, you are responsible for any missed handouts, announcements, reading material and lecture content. Class notes will be posted whenever possible to the webCT for the course. Check often for updates, class information, schedule (changes too!), solutions etc. I will not give incomplete grade. I expect you to come to class and I expect you to be prepared. I will call on people actively unless I have volunteers. Although I never expect you to have the perfect answer, I expect you try your best because by trying you develop important thinking skills. Keep in mind that I want the best for you and want you to succeed. I will not be taking daily attendance, but does not mean that I am not keeping track. In certain exceptional cases, I will take exceptional attendance and participation into account to raise a final grade. I leave the adjustment to my discretion. In order to meet you end of the deal, keep up with reading, class discussion and homework assignments. If you feel you are falling behind, do not hesitate to contact me.

ACADEMIC HONESTY The University of Texas System Policy on Academic Honesty appears in the Regents Rules and Regulations, Part One, Chapter VI, Section 3, Paragraph 3.22. Any student who commits an act of scholastic dishonesty is subject to discipline. Scholastic dishonesty includes but is not limited to cheating, plagiarism, collusion, the submission for credit of any work or materials that are attributable in whole or in part to another person, taking an examination for another, any act designed to give unfair advantage to a student or the attempt to commit such acts. The minimum penalty for academic dishonesty is a failing grade (zero) for the project or examination. Do your own work on all projects and exams.
