General Information

The main goal of the Discrete Mathematics Adaptation Course is to help students keep up with the course curriculum by discussing the most important and challenging topics in detail. The second very important goal of the course is to teach students to work competently with mathematical definitions and proofs, correctly logically build solutions to problems and prove statements. The topics of the course are coordinated with the "basic" course of the DSBA and SE program, but its study will also be useful for the direction of AMI. The approximate order of topics is sets and logic, functions and relations, the beginning of number theory, combinatorics, graphs, the foundations of probability theory, generating functions.


The classes are organised on Saturdays at 16:20.

Last year retake

Last year test 1


Homework 1 (Logics), Deadline 31st October

Homework 2 (Induction), Deadline 31st November, better to complete before the November Test

Hint🦉 in Problem 5: Do not try to prove P(n) out of P(n-1). Assume that P(1), P(2), ...P(n-1) are all true. For proving P(n) say: lets find the biggest Fibonacci number F_i<n. Then, n = F_i + k. For the k apply your assumption😉😉

Homework 3: write down solutions to exam 1 in a perfect manner (like you you are going to print a book of your solutions), Deadline 25th November. You can pass them written or orally on Fridays evenings. Do it if you want to have MAX in the retake(if so happened) and in the exam in the end of the course.

Homework 4 (Number theory), Deadline with bonus 29th December

Semester 1

Current grades and comments


1. Discrete Mathematics (An Open Introduction) by Oscar Levin, p. 197 Logics. Many simple problems with solution to feel the topic.

2. Lecture notes by Evgeny Dashkov

PLUS: there is a folder with records on wikipage

3. Шень А., Математическая индукция. 5-е изд, М.: МЦНМО, 2016. Many problems to work with three different versions of induction.

Grading and Results

Final grade = Average(HWs)+ Bonus points

Bonus point number is between 0 to 20. Such points may be given for a variety of auxiliary activities.
