Some Questions for Initial Discussion

  1. Have we identified the basic approaches for incorporating discrete mathematics into the first two years? Should we be considering some approaches beyond the three describe in this presentation?
  2. To what extent do mathematicians believe discrete mathematics is important for mathematics majors?
  3. How does discrete mathematics fit within the mathematics curriculum through the first two years?  
  4. Are there specific applications listed by Pedagogy Focus Group 2 that should be explained or expanded during this workshop?
  5. Do faculty in client disciplines mean the same thing as mathematicians in identifying topics?  
  6. To what extent do the themes and applications identified by Pedagogy Focus Group 2 provide coherence to the proposed two-semester sequence in discrete mathematics?
  7. Can the themes and applications identified by Pedagogy Focus Group 2 provide ideas for coherence and structure for a one-semester course in discrete mathematics?
