Textbook: Goodaire and Parmenter, Discrete Mathematics with Graph Theory, second edition. We will cover Chapters 1-6 and a selection of topics from Chapters 7, 9, 12. (See the syllabus.)

Grading System: There will be 500 course points: the quizzes will be worth 50 points total, the 3 tests 100 points each, and the final exam 150 points. The tests are held in class on these Fridays: February 22, March 22, May 3. Each test will cover the topics that we covered up to the time of the test and since the last test. The final exam is comprehensive.

Attendance: We meet M, W, F, and in discussion section on T or Th. Attendance is expected every day, including discussion. (Discussion is an important part of the course.)

Test Policy: You are responsible for everything covered in class and for all assigned readings and problems. NO MAKEUPS will be allowed on quizzes, and rarely on class tests. If you miss a test be prepared to document the reason. No early finals under any circumstances. If you have a question about any grade, you must see me before the next test.

There will be quizzes almost every week, usually in the discussion section.

You will not be allowed to used a calculator on exams. I recommend that you not rely on one when doing homework.

Homework: Homework will be discussed in the weekly discussion section. Please bring all your questions! You may also meet with the discussion TA or the lecturer to discuss anything you need to.

Homework will not be collected or graded. If you don't do it, however, you will not learn and you will ... . Neither of us wants this!

For other advice, see the homework page.
