B+/B/B-:  GOOD – good performance in all course learning outcomes and exceeding expectation in some of them; demonstration of good understanding of the subject matter and the ability to use proper concepts and materials to solve most of the problems encountered. C+/C/C-: FAIR – adequate performance and meeting expectation in all course learning outcomes; demonstration of adequate understanding of the subject matter and the ability to solve simple problems. D+/D: MARGINAL – performance barely meets the expectation in the essential course learning outcomes; demonstration of partial understanding of the subject matter and the ability to solve simple problems. F: FAILURE – performance does not meet the expectation in the essential course learning outcomes; demonstration of serious deficiencies and the need to retake the course. Learning outcomes 1. be familiar with basic mathematical concepts, e.g. sets, functions, graphs 2. be familiar with formal mathematical reasoning, e.g. logic, proofs 3. be able to see the connections between discrete mathematics and computer science Assessment (for reference only) Short answer test or exam：60% Others：40% Recommended Reading List 1.
