Background

You’ll need comfort at the introductory level with the following topics over the course of the term:  sets, logic, counting (combinatorics), probability, and plane geometry.  Don’t think of these as prerequisites because I’ll teach them as we go, but it’s worth the time investment early to get your comfort level up.
