上海交通大学(Shanghai Jiao Tong University) による 離散数学 の受講者のレビューおよびフィードバック



Discrete mathematics forms the mathematical foundation of computer and information science. It is also a fascinating subject in itself. Learners will become familiar with a broad range of mathematical objects like sets, functions, relations, graphs, that are omnipresent in computer science. Perhaps more importantly, they will reach a certain level of mathematical maturity - being able to understand formal statements and their proofs; coming up with rigorous proofs themselves; and coming up with interesting results. This course attempts to be rigorous without being overly formal. This means, for every concept we introduce we will show at least one interesting and non-trivial result and give a full proof. However, we will do so without too much formal notation, employing examples and figures whenever possible. The main topics of this course are (1) sets, functions, relations, (2) enumerative combinatorics, (3) graph theory, (4) network flow and matchings. It does not cover modular arithmetic, algebra, and logic, since these topics have a slightly different flavor and because there are already several courses on Coursera specifically on these topics....

Fantastic course. Fascinating material, presented at a reasonably fast pace, and some really challenging assignments.

This course is good to comprehend relation, function and combinations.

Actually I haven't finished course in the eleventh week yet, I've only done all the tests:). However, I'd like to say that I like this course very much, it's inspiring and difficult enough. Though I always have to struggle a lot to find the cocepts and meaning of the notations online, there have been enough hints. The only pity was that sometimes there's something which can't be shown normally in exercise, this has caused me some trouble. Overall it's great, and thanks a lot, professor Scheder.

This course includes the most difficult assignments I have ever had. In the end, but every question has the simplest solution. It was... fun.

Quiz problems are difficult to solve. Assignments are very lengthy

The course contents are very interesting, but there are lots of improvements could be done on the course structure and how they are delivered. Also it would be better if there are actually some "official" TAs take care of the forum.

The assignments are quite challenging for beginners ,but the lecture video is too brief or even sloppy.

Good Set of problem sets, though more vdieo lectures are required.

This course assumes certain knowledge about mathematical notation that is not taught or stipulated one must have. Typically courses will state what other courses you must have taken prior in order to begin. My assumption was that this is a introductory course to Discrete Mathematics, I unfortunately have not looked at set theory in perhaps 16 years. The notation was unfamiliar to me, and requires me to do my own searching for other courses to explain this (refresh) before I can take this course. I am concerned that this will continue to occur each week, and I simply am unaware what other assumptions the course holds. Again, this is not an issue with the subject matter, or instructor, whatsoever. It is more an issue with lack of disclosure on prior required knowledge.

Proof based courses don't work well on this format. Classmates don't know how to write or grade proofs, so they're basically pointless exercises. Also, the course does not stand alone; purchasing a textbook is required to obtain all of the necessary material. There are better lecture series for Discrete Mathematics on YouTube.

Does not provide much information about understanding key concepts, videos and material do not prepare students well for quizzes. There needs to be more learning material in each section to properly prepare students.

Good videos, but there is a huge gap between them and the assignmnets. The quizzes have bugs.
