Discrete Mathematics

Grade: 11 or 12

Subject Area/Course Credit: Mathematics, 1 credit

Prerequisite:  B- or above in AP Calculus AB, C or above in AP Calculus BC, or a teacher recommendation

Discrete Mathematics is the study of mathematical structures that are discrete, separated or distinct; in contrast with calculus which deals with continuous change. It is an important area of pure and applied mathematics, as well as providing the mathematical basis for the understanding of computers and modern computation. The Discrete Mathematics course introduces students to the basic concepts of discrete mathematics, covering topics such as logic, techniques of proof, matrices and vectors, and number and graph theory. The course provides important background for students aiming to pursue Mathematics or Computer Science in their future.
