DISCRETE MATH WITH DUCKS PDF

As I looked through the book and approached new topics, my mind drifted to wondering whether the author would use another play on words involved web-footed fowl. Images of ducks with pencils on their shoulders are used throughout to label positions where there are exercises to work through. The coverage is pretty standard for discrete mathematics courses; the only unusual addition was the section on transfinite numbers. It was presented as a play featuring a set of duck droppings and a modified Hilbert Hotel, which is quite a combination. There are three sections, each labeled with a theme. They are: The basics Graph theory Other material: probability and cardinality.

As I looked through the book and approached new topics, my mind drifted to wondering whether the author would use another play on words involved web-footed fowl. Images of ducks with pencils on their shoulders are used throughout to label positions where there are exercises to work through.

The coverage is pretty standard for discrete mathematics courses; the only unusual addition was the section on transfinite numbers. It was presented as a play featuring a set of duck droppings and a modified Hilbert Hotel, which is quite a combination.

There are three sections, each labeled with a theme. They are: The basics Graph theory Other material: probability and cardinality. Graph theory is strongly emphasized; it is the primary topic of 5 of the fifteen chapters. The sections on the basics of set theory and logic are brief, a total of 30 pages. There are some proofs, but probably not enough to satisfy the instructor that wants to emphasize the mathematics. This book can certainly be used to teach the standard course in discrete mathematics designed for computer science majors.

The lighter touch of duck references does amuse you and does not ever overshadow or disguise the mathematical concepts. Charles Ashbacher splits his time between consulting with industry in projects involving math and computers, teaching college classes and co-editing The Journal of Recreational Mathematics. In his spare time, he reads about these things and helps his daughter in her lawn care business.

Discrete Mathematics with Ducks

Discrete Mathematics with Ducks by dr. Actually, there are many one-to-one correspondences How many? It does not have any mathematical prerequisites and it does not assume any prior exposure to proofwriting. Still, the focus is firmly on actual discrete mathematics content rather than general mathematical background. For this reason, the book is also amenable to self-study.
