The School of Mathematical and Computational Sciences at the University of Prince Edward Island has 2 openings for sessional instructors during the forthcoming Summer 2023 semester. All positions are subject to final budgetary approval.

Please note: all courses offered below will be taught in person, unless otherwise specified as an online course.

Math - 2420 Combinatorics

This course offers a survey of topics in discrete mathematics that are essential for students majoring in the Mathematical and Computational Sciences. Topics include: logic, proof techniques such as mathematical induction, recursion, counting methods, and introductory graph theory. Three lecture hours per week 

Tuesdays, Thursdays 6:00 pm – 9:00pm
Requisite: Math 1920 - Must be completed prior to taking this course
3 hours credit

CS - 1920 Computer Science II + Lab

Students will learn and apply the object-oriented paradigm of programming to reinforce and extend their knowledge in computational thinking, data representation and algorithms. They will learn how encapsulation can be used to create robust programs that perform a well-defined set of tasks, and how to extend and reuse this code through inheritance and polymorphism. They will learn searching and sorting algorithms, how to apply recursion, and objects for organizing data such as linked lists, stacks, and queues. Three lecture hours and 1.5 hours lab per week

Tuesdays 5:00 pm – 6:15 pm
Thursdays 5:00 pm - 7:45pm
Lab Thursday 8:00 pm - 9:15
