*Discrete Mathematics and its Applications*(McGraw Hill, 2007). We will try and work through as much of the textbook as possible, skipping sections as necessary to move through the book.

**Office hours will be held in E10.**- Email messages
are welcome, and can
be used to ask a question or to set up an appointment. My schedule is posted
here.
Hours marked 'O. H.' are office hours, and hours marked 'open' on my schedule
**may**be available for appointments (to be made in advance), but are not office hours and I may not be in my office during 'open' hours unless I have set up an appointment with you. If none of the office hours work out for you, please send me an email.

- Four hour exams
- A comprehensive, in-class final exam which will have the weight of two hour exams.
- Homework will be assigned frequently, and homework assignments will be due at least two regular class periods following the assignment (leaving a day before an assignment is due to discuss any questions or problems). From each homework set I will select several problems to grade. Questions on any problems, assigned or not, are, of course, welcome. The homework will have the cumulative weight of one hour exam.

- The textbook and lectures will include some of the history of the discipline and connections with computer science (indeed, this course will present a partial survey of the discipline of computer science). This should be considered as course material. An excellent link for historical material is the MacTutor History of Mathematics page.
- I will make every effort to return homework and exam papers no later than a week from the time they are turned in. That is, papers turned in on a Wednesday should be returned no later than the following Wednesday.
- There are generally very few excused absences from exams. A (documentable)
illness is one (though I may not always require documentation, you should be
prepared to supply it). Lack of preparation, unless caused by a
*recent*(again documentable) illness can not be used for an excused absence. Except for emergencies (accident, medical emergency, etc.) no requests for an excused absence the day of an exam or later can be accepted. Any make-ups should be completed a few days after an exam is taken by the class and in any case should be taken within a week of the class exam. - Exam arrangements can be made with Ivey West at the Center for Writing, Learning, and Teaching (Howarth 105) for students with documented learning disabilities. Formal written arrangements must be made in advance of the day of the exam.
