Course Description:
(MA208) This course introduces the student to selected finite systems pertinent to the  study of computer science.  Course topics will include the following:   mathematical induction, sets, relations, functions, matrices, graphs, trees,   combinatorial analysis, Boolean algebra, and other structures.  Prerequisite:   Any math course >= MA131. 3:0:3

Learning Outcomes:
  Core Learning Outcomes

  1. Solve problems involving: set operations, equivalence and partial ordering relations, mathematical induction
  2. Analyze graphs, paths, circuits, graph coloring, direct graphs
  3. Apply shortest path algorithms to graphs
  4. Explain tree properties, spanning trees, rooted trees, binary trees
  5. Apply tree search and tree traversal algorithms to trees
  6. Use counting techniques
  7. Solve problems involving permutations, combinations, and probability
  8. Solve problems involving recurrence relations and generating functions


Core Assessment:




For this course, the
assessment is based on a final exam. There will be 4 questions in each of the 8
categories, i.e. Synthesis, Analysis,… etc. Thus, there will be 32 questions
total in the final exam. Furthermore, all 4 questions for each category should
cover all 4 learning outcomes.

Academic Honesty:
Academic integrity is the foundation of the academic community. Because each student has the primary responsibility for being academically honest, students are advised to read and understand all sections of this policy relating to standards of conduct and academic life.   Park University 2005-2006 Undergraduate Catalog Page 85-87

Plagiarism:
Plagiarism involves the use of quotations without quotation marks, the use of quotations without indication of the source, the use of another's idea without acknowledging the source, the submission of a paper, laboratory report, project, or class assignment (any portion of such) prepared by another person, or incorrect paraphrasing. Park University 2005-2006 Undergraduate Catalog Page 85-87

Attendance Policy:
Instructors are required to maintain attendance records and to report absences via the online attendance reporting system.

  1. The instructor may excuse absences for valid reasons, but missed work must be made up within the semester/term of enrollment.
  2. Work missed through unexcused absences must also be made up within the semester/term of enrollment, but unexcused absences may carry further penalties.
  3. In the event of two consecutive weeks of unexcused absences in a semester/term of enrollment, the student will be administratively withdrawn, resulting in a grade of "WH".
  4. A "Contract for Incomplete" will not be issued to a student who has unexcused or excessive absences recorded for a course.
  5. Students receiving Military Tuition Assistance or Veterans Administration educational benefits must not exceed three unexcused absences in the semester/term of enrollment. Excessive absences will be reported to the appropriate agency and may result in a monetary penalty to the student.
  6. Report of a "F" grade (attendance or academic) resulting from excessive absence for those students who are receiving financial assistance from agencies not mentioned in item 5 above will be reported to the appropriate agency.
ONLINE NOTE: An attendance report of "P" (present) will be recorded for students who have logged in to the Online classroom at least once during each week of the term. Recording of attendance is not equivalent to participation. Participation grades will be assigned by each instructor according to the criteria in the Grading Policy section of the syllabus.
