# 6.042 Mathematics for Computer Science

Elementary discrete mathematics for computer science and engineering. Emphasis on mathematical definitions and proofs as well as on applicable methods. Topics include formal logic notation, proof methods; induction, well-ordering; sets, relations; elementary graph theory; asymptotic notation and growth of functions; permutations and combinations, counting principles; discrete probability. Further selected topics include recursive definition and structural induction, state machines and invariants, integer congruences, recurrences, generating functions.

This class has 18.01 as a prerequisite.

6.042 will be offered this semester (Fall 2018). It is instructed by F. T. Leighton,  Z. R. Abel and  A. Moitra.

Lecture occurs 2:30 PM to 4:00 PM on Tuesdays and Thursdays in 26-100.

This class counts for a total of 12 credits.

# 8.02 Physics II

Introduction to electromagnetism and electrostatics: electric charge, Coulomb's law, electric structure of matter; conductors and dielectrics. Concepts of electrostatic field and potential, electrostatic energy. Electric currents, magnetic fields and Ampere's law. Magnetic materials. Time-varying fields and Faraday's law of induction. Basic electric circuits. Electromagnetic waves and Maxwell's equations. Subject taught using the TEAL (Technology Enabled Active Learning) studio format which utilizes small group interaction and current technology to help students develop intuition about, and conceptual models of, physical phenomena.

This class has 18.01, and 8.01 as prerequisites.

8.02 will be offered this semester (Fall 2018). It is instructed by N. Gedik, M. Tegmark, P. Dourmashkin and R. Redwine.

Lecture occurs 11:00 AM to 1:00 PM on Mondays and Wednesdays in 32-082.

This class counts for a total of 12 credits.
