I received an A+ in my undergraduate Discrete Mathematics course at UC Berkeley. I use discrete math frequently when performing amortized analysis on computer programs. I also use discrete structures when finding approximate solutions to integrals in both physics and calculus. Just for fun, I like to re-derive formulas like Gauss' method for summing the numbers from 1 to n (there are n/2 pairs of numbers that sum to n + 1, therefore the answer is n*(n + 1)/2, cool right?). I am recent graduate of UC Berkeley's College of Engineering. While in school I studied a variety of disciplines including [more]

I majored in mathematical and computational sciences at Stanford in 2006 and have been tutoring up to AB calculus and statistics for 14 years. Statistics was about 1/3 of my math major, and I made an A in my number theory class which had a cryptography portion. Probability (especially combinatorics) is one of my favorite concepts to teach. Almost all of my kids have raised their scores by at least one letter grade. I have been tutoring students for 14 years in California, Manhattan, England and Houston, TX. All of my students raise their scores by at least a letter grade. SAT students hav [more]

I have a background as an actuary and MBA training. Therefore, I have experience with many of the areas of discrete math typically encountered in introductory college coursework: set theory, combinatorics, probability theory, matrices and operations research. There is no one way to learn. Rote memorization is at one end of the spectrum and instantaneous complete understanding and insight of the topic is at the other end. There is a lot in between. People do not learn everything the same way - their own ability to learn changes from moment to moment and subject to subject. Sometimes m [more]

I have a BA in Mathematics from UC Berkeley. Discrete Math is an introduction to all of the mathematics that is used in computer science. Not the math that you might solve using a computer; rather, the math that led to the existence of computers in the first place, and that helps you analyze how to write programs about non-mathematical subjects, and that helps you analyze how well a program works. It gets you started on a huge number of different subjects: algebra, logic, graph theory, automata theory, formal language theory ... just to name a very few! This might seem intimidating. But I [more]

I am majoring in Mathematics at Mills College, with potential interest in pursuing a Master's Degree in Computer Science. As part of my coursework last semester, I took a course in Discrete Math. I am familiar with various proof techniques and with logic and set theory, and I am experienced in the kind of mathematical thinking that Discrete Math requires. I am a junior at Mills College, pursuing a Bachelor of Arts in Mathematics. Before college, I never would have guessed that I would end up studying math, but a really great experience with a professor at Mills changed my mind. I believe [more]

I have taken a variety of Undergrad math courses including Discrete Math. Discrete is an interesting course that brings in probability, proof writing, logic, and number theory among other topics. I can help students to improve their understanding of how to write proofs, apply counting strategies, follow logic to reach conclusions, work with the Chinese Remainder Theorem, Fermat's Little Theorem, modular arithmetic, etc. I am currently in the Cal Teach Credential Program at UC Berkeley and am a High School Math Teacher.

I have a B.Sc. in Economics/Operations Research and I studied optimization, graph theory and applied Operations Research methodology to research and modeling. I hold a M.S. in Mathematics and an interdisciplinary Ph.D. in Mathematics, Computer Science, and Physics. Over time I have been working at colleges and universities in Germany, in France, and in the U.S. In addition I worked for a decade at research labs in Germany and in the U.S. (LBNL) and at a risk modeling company. Since 2010 I dedicate my professional attention full time to teaching mainly math and computer science as a tutor and [more]

I have my bachelor of science in electrical and computer engineering from UC Davis. Discrete mathematics was required with strong background in the major. It also was hugely involved in algorithm design course in the computer science related courses that I mastered in. I have graduated with double major in Electrical and Computer Engineering from UC Davis. Ever since I took math class at elementary school, I loved learning math. I was always the first person in the class to raise my hand to answer the teacher questions. I was so curious in learning multiple ways of approaching a single problem [more]

My BS degree in Computer Science required me to take an upper level Discrete Math course. I have used discrete math in my work including probabilities, set theory, and tree structures. I have also tutored discrete math at the College of Alameda. Mathematical concepts have always come easy to me. It is a talent I was born with and enjoyed every subject from arithmetic, to geometry and trig, algebra and calculus, linear algebra and real analysis. It was an easy transition to computer science. My career took me from database programming to web development and continues to evolve. I have found th [more]

I have taken two courses in discrete mathematics. The first, at Pennsylvania Governor's School for the Sciences, was problem solving-based, covering a variety of topics in combinatorics, graph theory, and number theory. The second, Mathematics 152 at Harvard, was a rigorous proof-based course that linked topics in discrete mathematics to group theory and Euclidean geometry. I've taken two other courses at the graduate level that covered a topic called "evolutionary graph theory," which applies certain elements of game theory to computational models of evolutionary dynamics, evaluated on struc [more]
