New Course Discrete Structures for Computing to Replace Math 2155/2156
Starting in September 2012, the Department of Computer Science is introducing a new course, CS2214A/B entitled Discrete Structures for Computing. This course is designed to replace the need for other discrete structures courses in our programs, namely Mathematics 2155A/B and 2156A/B. The decision to launch this new course was made after extensive consultation with students, alumni, and academic counsellors over new directions to take in our courses and programs.
Note that Mathematics 2155A/B and 2156A/B may still be taken for credit instead of the new course, or may still be counted for credit, if you have already taken them. Adjustments to other courses ensure that only a half course in discrete structures is now necessary on its own, so even if Mathematics 2155A/B is taken instead, Mathematics 2156A/B is now optional in all our programs.
It is strongly urged that students take CS2214A/B instead of Mathematics 2155A/B and 2156A/B, as it is designed more specifically to the changing needs of a computing curriculum. The course is being developed by, and will be delivered by our own Dr. Lila Kari, and so we are certain that this will be an engaging and educational experience for all!
