The textbook is the same one as previous years, but in a new edition, 5th edition:
Kenneth H. Rosen,
Discrete Mathematics and Its
Applications, 5. útgáfa. It is very doubtful that you can use the edition from
two years ago (i.e. 4th edition).
Grades and homework
There will be weekly homework that will be put on the homepage late wednesdays.
You are to turn in solutions to your section teachers box in VR-II before noon
on mondays. The homework will be graded, and the total grade counts for 10% of
the final grade for the course.
Most of the homework will not be very hard, so you should always start by
trying to solve the problems yourselves. Most of the time you will succeed, but
in case of complicated problems you are allowed to disscuss the problems with
other students and even work on them together. Be very careful that you do not
end up just passively accept solutions from other students. In the end that will benefit
you less than handing in incomplete solutions that you have worked on completely
