Computer Science 102: Discrete Structures will be offered in the fall semester with Oliver Bonham-Carter. Lectures will be held on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday at 11:00 am with a weekly lab session on Wednesday at 2:30 pm.
An introduction to the foundations of computer science with an emphasis on understanding the abstract structures used to represent discrete objects. Participating in hands-on activities that often require teamwork, students learn the computational methods and logical principles that they need to create and manipulate discrete objects in a programming environment. Students also learn how to write, organize, and document a program’s source code so that it is easily accessible to intended users of varied backgrounds. During a weekly laboratory session students use state-of-the-art technology to complete projects, reporting on their results through both written documents and oral presentations.
Prerequisite: Knowledge of elementary algebra.
Distribution Requirements: QR, SP.
