This book collects the work of thirty-five instructors who share their innovations and insights about teaching discrete mathematics. Whether you teach at the college or high school level; whether your students are from mathematics, computer science, or engineering; whether you emphasize logic, proof, counting, graph theory, or applications, you will find resources in this book to supplement your discrete mathematics course.
Nineteen classroom-tested projects, eleven history modules drawing on original sources, and five articles address a wide range of topics reflecting the breadth of content and audiences in various discrete mathematics courses. A sampling of topics includes building a geodesic dome, working with excerpts of Pascal's Treatise on the Arithmetical Triangle; applying discrete mathematics to biology and chemistry, and using logic in encouraging students to construct proofs.

Brian Hopkins received his B.S. in mathematics and a B.A. in philosophy from the University of Texas in 1990, and earned his Ph.D. in mathematics from the University of Washington in 1997. He teaches at Saint Peter's College, a Jesuit liberal arts institution in Jersey City, where he has led several undergraduate research projects and has been the recipient of the Varrichio Award for Teaching Excellence two times.Review:
The collection of discrete mathematics projects, activities, and articles is of the highest caliber that one expects from the Mathematical Association of America...Quite simply, this is a top-notch anthology. Highly recommended. --N. W. Schillow, Choice
