About the course

 

Now that you have completed a graduate course in Discrete Mathematics:

 

  1. What mathematical ideas/concepts do you understand better after taking this course?
  2. Will this “new knowledge” affect the way you teach your own classes?
  3. If you already use cooperative learning in your classes, how will the experience gained in this class influence your teaching? Answer the question if you have never used cooperative learning.
  4. Of the different teaching styles used in class (cooperative learning, computer-aided, lecturing by instructor, etc.) which one was more effective in your learning of the material studied? Which one do you think will be most beneficial to your students?
  5. How will the experience of being a student again while working on your Master’s degree  affect your teaching?
  6. What do you consider to be the greatest benefit for you of having taken this class?
