Topics Outline for MA275 -

*Discrete and Combinatorial Mathematics, an Applied Introduction* 5'th edition. Ralph Grimaldi, Addison-Wesley

- Chapter 1 – Sections 1.1-1.4
- Chapter 2 – Sections 2.1-2.5
- Chapter 3 – Sections 3.1-3.4
- Chapter 4 – Sections 4.1-4.5 (The coverage of Section 4.2 should
deal primarily with the
recursive definitions of number sequences such as the Fibonacci and Lucas
Numbers.)

Elementary proofs dealing with number theory seemed to go quite well last year for everyone, I believe. Hopefully, we’ll see the same level of success this time around. - Chapter 5 – Sections 5.1, 5.2, 5.3, 5.5, 5.6 (If time permits, try to include the material in Section 5.4)
