i barely understood anything in my previous lecture
dem discrete structures
discrete structures just sounds like a cool subject
so...buildings that don't stand out?
I have to take that next semester, that's not a good first impression :(
What the hell is it?
If Rayne's class is anything like my class, it deals with this: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Discrete_mathematics
Not reading that. So just complicated math. Is it hard God?
It's not that bad.
This is what we had:
UNIT 1:
- Set Theory: Sets and Subsets, Set Operations and the Laws of Set Theory, Counting and Venn Diagrams, A First Word on Probability, Countable and Uncountable Sets
6 Hours
UNIT 2:

7 Hours
UNIT 3:
- Fundamentals of Logic contd.: The Use of Quantifiers, Quantifiers, Definitions and the Proofs of Theorems
6 Hours
UNIT 4:
- Properties of the Integers: Mathematical Induction, The Well Ordering Principle – Mathematical Induction, Recursive Definitions

I'm going to be taking logic next semester, so I'll be baffled with you, rayne
this isnt your pussy philosophy/liberal arts logic class solly. it's hardcore mathematical logic!
logic 1000 is mathematics, it's listed under sciences, and largely consists of complex proofs
owned
i think me and Dogar may be the only people on PD who are solely liberal arts based
