Course Learning Outcomes

1. [Abstract Concepts]
Understand abstract mathematical concepts which are fundamental to computer science, e.g., logic, sets, functions, basic probability, graph theory.
2. [Proof Techniques]
Be able to perform abstract thinking and present logical argument using techniques such as mathematical induction, proof by contradiction.
3. [Basic analysis techniques]
able to apply formal reasoning to analyze and enumerate the possible outcomes of a computational problem e.g. model and compute the number of operations using recursion, counting and combinatorics.
