Discrete Math

Matthew taught Carnegie Mellon's Concepts of Mathematics course (course number 21-127) when it was being used as an introduction to discrete mathematics for computer scientists. Topics covered included methods of proof (direct proof, proof by contradiction, mathematical induction), elementary number theory (prime factorization theorem, Euclidean algorithm, modular arithmetic), combinatorics (binomial theorem, pigeonhole principle, inclusion-exclusion principle), injections/surjections/bijections, equivalence relations, and discrete probability (probability spaces, expectation values, linearity of expectation). Matthew has also taught Carnegie Mellon's Graph Theory course (course number 21-484).
