1a Mathematics Teaching Materials:
Here are my
Lecture Notes on Discrete Mathematics.
These notes started off as my notes - for lecturing from
- when I was lecturing DM at Queen Mary - to Computer Science students
as it happens - and in making them available I am giving no
guarantees. Word has reached me that Cambridge 1a CS students refer
to these notes, so I have tidied them up a bit. Notification of typos,
etc, suggestions for improvement, etc, will be received with thanks
and attract the usual rewards.
They should be useful to 1a mathmos; the 1a course being followed by
my CS readers is a cousin of 1a Numbers-and-Sets: years ago
CS Discrete Mathematics and Maths Numbers and sets were the same
course. They probably still should be.
Here is a worked example of a proof by course-of-values
induction, prepared by Frank King, and included with his
At some point I shall put a link to my
discussion notes of Dr Wadsley's 2017 example sheets .
Here are my notes of Dr Camina's 1a Algebra lectures from a couple of years ago.

that contains everything you need to know about countability. It also
has some instructive exercises. You can skip the appendix if you like
but you should definitely read everything before it. It has to be said
that Gareth Taylor thinks that they are too sophisticated for 1a maths
students. I think he's wrong. (He's not often wrong about paedogogy but we are none of us infallible)
