This book discusses examples of discrete mathematics in school curricula, including in the areas of graph theory, recursion and discrete dynamical systems, combinatorics, logic, game theory, and the mathematics of fairness.
Part I: The Landscape of Discrete Mathematics in the School Curriculum Discrete Mathematics is Essential Mathematics in a 21st Century School Curriculum (and introduction to this volume) Eric W. Hart and W. Gary Martin The Absence of Discrete Mathematics from Primary and Secondary Education in the United States ... and Why that is Counterproductive Joseph G.
