https://amser.org//index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=8081
https://amser.org//index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=8081This is an introductory course in discrete mathematics oriented toward students interested in computer science and engineering. The course divides roughly into thirds: fundamental concepts of mathematics: definitions, proofs, sets, functions, and relations. Discrete structures: modular arithmetic, graphs, state machines, and counting. Discrete probability is the third section, and completes the course. The website itself offers lecture slides, assignments, and course notes for each reading section. The site is a valuable resource.Fri, 7 Nov 2008 03:00:01 -0600American Mathematical Society Journals

https://amser.org//index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=5150
https://amser.org//index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=5150Flavius Josephus was a Jewish historian living in the first century when he and his comrades found themselves trapped in a cave. Surrounded by Roman centurions, this band chose suicide over capture, and they elected to form a circle and then start killing themselves. From this rather traumatic situation came the well-known Josephus Problem, a classic problem of recreational mathematics. This educational resource offered by Doug Ensley of Shippensburg University will help math teachers teach their charges about this fabled problem. This site includes an interactive demonstration of the problem, complete with a historical background essay. Additionally, the site also contains information about making the best use of this resource in the classroom.Wed, 5 Dec 2007 03:00:02 -0600Discrete Math Resources: Flash Applications

In order to help students better comprehend and learn the mathematical components of computer science, Shodor has produced this extensive list of activities and projects that students can complete, or that teachers can assign, in order to understand the relevant ideas and put these ideas in a pertinent context for program design. Included are problems, exercise descriptions, and answer keys where appropriate. The emphasis on math in this website makes the activities described valuable to algebra, geometry, and calculus classes in addition to those professors of computer science. The site will be valuable to educators and students alike as teaching aids and student projects.Wed, 7 Nov 2007 03:00:01 -0600On-line electronic textbook of college level Mathematics

https://amser.org//index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=4131
https://amser.org//index.php?P=FullRecord&ResourceId=4131Originally started by Professor Dave Rusin of Northern Illinois University, the Mathematical Atlas is now a very large "collection of articles about aspects of mathematics at and above the university level, but (usually) not at the level of current research." The amount of material is immense; fortunately, there are multiple ways of browsing the site. Subjects are mainly geared toward modern mathematics, and there are currently 97 different areas covered. Each article gives a basic introduction to the subject, applications and related fields, and selected topics. There are also many references to resources, both books and online, that discuss the topic in greater detail.Fri, 27 Jul 2007 03:00:01 -0500
