Discrete Math

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.


Linear Algebra

As part of my coursework towards a Bachelor of Arts in Mathematics at Mills College, I took a Linear Algebra course. It was, I think, the one class that convinced me to major in mathematics. I did exceptionally well and I thoroughly enjoyed it.


Logic

Over the last semester, I took a course in Discrete Math at Mills College. Part of this course was a discussion of logic and set theory. I feel confident in my understanding of logic and in my ability to tutor others in this subject.
