MATH1004 is designed to provide a thorough preparation for further study in Mathematics. It is a core unit of study providing three of the twelve credit points required by the Faculty of Science. This unit provides an introduction to fundamental aspects of discrete mathematics, which deals with ‘things that come in chunks that can be counted’. It focuses on the enumeration of a set of numbers, viz. Catalan numbers. Topics include sets and functions, counting principles, Boolean expressions, mathematical induction, generating functions and linear recurrence relations, graphs and trees.


Quizzes, assignments, 1.5 hr exam.
