Hello again! I’m Samina Ehsan, and I am the designer and instructor of CS-225_400: Discrete Structures in CS. This course deals with the mathematical and theoretical concepts that you will need in the later courses in this program. I hope you enjoy the course.

- Piazza is the best way to reach me for any course-related queries. We can refer back to our previous discussions here and also as it will be visible to the entire class. So, the other students will be able to get benefit from it. Not all posts require a reply from me and often it is better for students to hash out an answer to a question. But please email me if you do not receive a reply within 24 hours.
- Sending email firstname.lastname@example.org is the preferred way to only for matters of a personal nature related to the course (Please include the prefix CS225_400_W21 in the subject) or if you have not received a reply to your post on Piazza. Please resend the email if I do not respond within 24 hours.
- I can be reached via the class-specific Slack workspace/Zoom during my office hours. For details on getting set up on Slack, please visit here.
