A study of mathematical topics characterized by discrete processes. The study focuses on combinatorics, the theory of graphs and trees, matrix representations, and iterative algorithms. Recursive thinking and inductive processes are emphasized through a variety of applications involving discrete mathematical models. Deductive proof is introduced through topics from logic, set theory, and graph theory, and some relevant topics from the history of mathematics are explored.
