Discrete Mathematics in Computer Science (SU21)

The Summer 2021 edition of CS 30 has ended, and this page is open to the public.

In the links below one can find the relevant lecture notes and assignments. However, the solutions have been locked, and I won't make them available. 

The course loosely followed the following excellent text by David Liben-Nowell, Discrete Mathematics for Computer ScienceThis book is available online!
