cs330 - Fall 2002
The objective of the course is to introduce students to discrete structures and methodologies,
with special emphasis on structures applicable to computer science.
Students are expected to gain knowledge of proof methodologies and techniques useful
in the analysis of algorithms.

Unless otherwise stated all papers you turn in will be TYPED. Handwritten
work will be penalized 50%. Each page will have a header as follows:
- the left side: your name
- middle: page number and the total number of pages (ex. 2/5 indicates this

- right hand side: name of the assignment (ex. Homework #2)
Each page will also have a footer:
- the left hand side will contain the following text:
cs330-section: Fall 2002 where section stands for the
section you are in
- the right hand side will contain the following text:
Illinois Institute of Technology - Computer Science
The header and the footer will be Arial or Helvetica, 10 points, regular.
The text for the paper itself will be typed using Times Roman (12 points
regular, except for titles which may be larger and bold).
