you have completed a graduate course in Discrete Mathematics:
mathematical ideas/concepts do you understand better after taking this course?
this “new knowledge” affect the way you teach your own classes?
- 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
