Discrete Math Primer – OLI

In the summer before computer science students start their courses at Carnegie Mellon, they must complete the Discrete Math Primer, a tool that uses self-paced interactive modules to provide students a baseline of math competency necessary for their future classwork. While the materials were developed and used at CMU, they are available to students at any institution.

Course designers specifically created the modules to target prerequisite skills that struggling students sometimes lack in logic, sets, and functions.

These materials are available as an OLI course.

  • Open Learning Initiative (OLI) courses are designed by learning scientists at Carnegie Mellon University. They use data and research insights to develop, test, and improve OER course materials that effectively support learning.

This course is available at no cost to SUNY students.
