• "BELL TO BELL"   is the mantra for  Discrete Math.  If students fully adopt the bell to bell philosophy, they will stay engaged in the learning process from the moment the first bell rings to start class until the moment the bell rings to end class.  As engaged learners, the students will be able to complete almost all of the "work" associated with this class during the class period. Class members are expected to bring their "A" game to class each and everyday.
