Master the fundamentals of discrete mathematics and proof-writing with MATHEMATICS: A DISCRETE INTRODUCTION! With a wealth of learning aids and a clear presentation, the mathematics text teaches you not only how to write proofs, but how to think clearly and present cases logically beyond this course. Though it is presented from a mathematician's perspective, you will learn the importance of discrete mathematics in the fields of computer science, engineering, probability, statistics, operations research, and other areas of applied mathematics. Tools such as Mathspeak, hints, and proof templates prepare you to succeed in this course.
