Discrete mathematics is used to solve certain types of math problems, such as how to count or enumerate quantities, and to describe their properties and the relationships among them. Discrete math is applied math: it provides the basis for much of computer science, statistics, and programming, as well as being integral to engineering and many different scientific disciplines. Discrete math helps to find solutions to every day, real-world problems.Taken at UC San Diego Extension in lieu of CSUMB’s Math 170 (Discrete Mathematics)
In this course, students are introduced to the fundamental concepts and cover some of the essential techniques of discrete mathematics. With emphasis on the problem solving and a very hands-on approach, students will master concepts and techniques such as number theory and graph theory.
