This course emphasizes the relationships between certain mathematical structures and various topics in computer science. Topics include set theory, graphs and trees, algorithms, propositional calculus, logic and induction, functions, relational algebra, and matrix algebra.
Calculus is recommended.
Not for graduate credit. A mathematics course beyond one year of calculus is needed for admission to the Computer Science, Cybersecurity, or Data Science program. A course in either calculus or discrete mathematics is needed for admission to the Information Systems Engineering program. Students who lack this prerequisite can fulfill admission requirements by completing this course with a grade of B- or better.
