MAT 101: Concepts of Mathematics (3 credits)

**Description:**Topics include: formal symbolic logic, arguments, methods of proof; basic concepts of sets, set operations and probability, consideration of number systems and computers.

This is a logic course, so it may seem very different from other math courses. This course looks at the language of arguments and proofs, rather than focusing on numbers and calculations. Students will

- study the meaning of "and," "or," "not," and "if then" statements,
- use written information to draw valid conclusions,
- learn logical equivalences and how to apply them.

- How logic relates to simple electronic circuits and devices
- Strategies for simple games (like tic-tac-toe)
- Basic Decision Theory
- Truth Tables
- Set Theory- classification and categorization of objects
