Supplementary textbook: bookpicture   Discrete Mathematics and its Applications, Seventh Edition,
  by Kenneth H. Rosen,
  McGraw Hill, 2012
Classes Structure (usually, but now always) :
lecture (2/3), then (or during the lecture) practice (1/3)
We will have four tests that cover Chapters 11-13 separately. You will be given recommended preparaion materials, but we won't have in-class reviews. I might organize outside-the-class meetings, on Thursday, during club hours, 12 pm - 2pm, to address questions you have during the preparation.
In every class you will be given a homework assignment with the due date. Late homework submissions are not accepted. You can get somebody's help but keep in mind that you need to understand what you are doing, since on the tests and on the final exam you will be on your own.

  • There will be no extra assignments in order to raise you grade.

  • There will be several review classes before the Final Exam. However, there will be no review classes before Tests, nor after the tests.

  • If you miss a class on any reason it is your responsibility to study the material presented, get the homework assignment, do the homework and submit it on time.

  • I will be sending some e-mails (with reminders and other useful stuff) from CUNY First, therefore make sure that you have an e-mail you often check as a preferred e-mail address at CUNY First.
