My degree is from RPI in Theoretical Mathematics, and thus included taking Discrete Mathematics as well as a variety of other proof-writing courses (Number Theory, Graph Theory, and Markov Chains to name a few). I absolutely love writing proofs and thinking problems out abstractly. I favor the Socratic Method of teaching, asking questions of the student to help him/her find her/his own way through the problem rather than telling what the next step is. This way the student not only learns how to solve a specific proof, but ways to approach proofs that will work on problems the student has never [more]

I completed the course and credit requirements in Discrete Math as part of my undergraduate studies. I have used concepts from Discrete Math frequently as a basis for mathematical modeling for software engineering projects in industry and also in teaching. I received a BA degree in Mathematics from Temple University. I taught mathematics courses as a recitation instructor for undergraduates including Finite Mathematics with Applications and also Differential and Integral Calculus. I was as enthusiastic about teaching math as I was with my major. Teaching was a very natural and rewarding expe [more]

I have a Bachelor's degree in Mathematics from Penn State University and a Master's degree in Mathematics from Villanova. In undergraduate school, I studied Probability, including Combinatorics, Mathematical Logic, Discrete Mathematics (Set Theory, Group Theory, etc.), Number Theory, Graph Theory, as well as Abstract Algebra. I took a 24 lecture DVD course on Discrete Mathematics (Combinatorics, Number Theory, Graph Theory) and studied Number Theory, Abstract Algebra in graduate school and did my final seminar on complex, unexplored areas in Graph Theory. I would say my strongest attributes [more]

I have taken a course in discrete math at Rutgers University and have tutored undergraduates in discrete math. I am scheduled to begin PhD study at University of Delaware in the Fall 2013 and will likely specialize in something related to number theory/combinatorics. Discrete math is of course a vast branch of mathematics, and I look forward to brushing up on anything I may be unfamiliar with, on my own time, prior to any Wyzant appointments. I have been tutoring since 2007 at the middle school, high school, and college level. I am College Reading and Learning Association Level 1 Certified. At [more]

Not only have I studied the problems specific to discrete mathematics but I have taken several other courses related to the subject. I have a strong background in the fundamentals as they are also used heavily in all of Mathematics (Logic, proofs, set theory, etc). Specific courses include: Foundations of Mathematical Reasoning, Discrete Mathematics, Digital Logic Design, Computer Programming, Abstract and Linear Algebra (vector spaces, finite group theory, etc). Hence, I have experience with the problems, how to solve the problems, and why they are being taught to students at this level. [more]

I am currently doing my thesis in probabilistic combinatorics, but I also study the algebraic side as time allows. Additionally, at the time of writing in the summer of 2017, I am teaching discrete math at Drexel University. There is something that I call the "Aha!" moment. It's the look on a student's face when they comprehend something they've been struggling to understand. It's not quite the same look with everybody; some students get widened eyes, while others grunt approvingly while smiling. Whatever the variation, the look is unmistakable, and it's the look I anticipate in every meeting. [more]
