Discrete mathematics is that part of mathematics not involving limit processes. It includes logic, the integers, finite structures, sets and networks.
Discrete mathematics underpins many areas of modern-day science including theoretical computer science, cryptography, coding theory, operations research and computational biology. This course is an introduction to discrete mathematics, and is designed for students interested in mathematics or computer science. Topics covered in the course include: logic, number theory, cryptography, set theory, functions, relations, linear algebra and graph theory.Suitable background for MATH120 includes at least 18 credits in NCEA Level 3 Mathematics with Calculus and/or Level 3 Mathematics with Statistics; or MATH101 (available in Semester 1).
