continuation of some of the themes explored in AS/SC/MATH 1580 3.0. Further
topics include elements of probability and statistics, the nature of
computers, elementary set theory and logic.
This course will continue in the spirit of MATH 1580 3.0. The course
provide additional opportunities for students to develop a positive
attitude towards mathematics and to achieve success in thinking
mathematically. There will be an emphasis on problem solving both in
class and in home-work assignments. Students will be encouraged to
reflect on their activities by keeping a journal.
The final grade will be based on a combination of assignments,
and participation. The specific breakdown will be discussed and
decided upon in the first class.

the course coordinator.
Exclusions:Not open to any student who has
taken or is taking another university mathematics course
(except AS/SC/MATH 1580 3.0), unless
permission of the course coordinator is obtained.
