At the moment, the class is planned to be held dominantly online with on-demand videos. Some classes will be taught optionally offline. There will be no requirement to come to campus and no final exam!
Depending on the evolution of the corona virus, details are subject to change.


This course covers elementary discrete mathematics for computer science and engineering. An emphasis is given on mathematical definitions and proof with topics covering proof methods, induction, graph theory, counting and discrete probability. The course will be given in English.

The course will be evaluated fundamentally with a midterm examination on the 8th week and a final examination on the 15th week. In the case that the midterm evaluation goes poorly, it will not be used in the evaluation, which will then be based on fundamentally the final examination. Small in-class quizzes and attendance will also be considered in the final grade.


  1. Learn to think logical and analytically
  2. Be able to do simple proofs
  3. Ability to understand and manipulate graphs
  4. Notions of discrete probability
