Discrete Mathematics & Probability Theory
I found the course challenging but ended up surviving, going on to head TA for it 3x. Here is a step-by-step guide for you to do the same or better.
Start by reading the tips below.
- How to write a proof
- How to fix a proof
- To maximize lecture, listen like you're about to reteach it.
During lectures, anticipate the next step, live. If you don't attend lecture, at minimum, read course notes -- still with the same goal of anticipation. Then, after lecture, review the crib sheet, and take a quiz with an exam mindset.
