Course Description:

In this upper level mathematics course explore the precise, foundational, mathematical concepts that underlie much of computer science and further studies in mathematics. Beginning with foundational mathematical concepts, including formal symbolic logic, an introduction to deductive proof, sets, relations, functions, and partial orders, induction and recursion, the principles of counting, algorithms and complexity and an introduction to graph theory.

The primary audience for this course is students who wish to concentrate in either mathematics or applied mathematics. Students interested in various fields which have a strong connection to this branch of mathematics (such as physics, computer science, information systems, information technology, or the cognitive sciences) may also be interested in this course.

Prior to enrolling in this course, student should have excellent algebraic skills and working knowledge of mathematical notation and terminology. At least two semesters of undergraduate mathematics is strongly recommended, with one of these being at a minimum Pre-Calculus or higher.
