Combinatorics
Through Guided Discovery


by Kenneth P. Bogart

Ken Bogart Before his death in 2005, Ken Bogart was in the final stages of completing an NSF-sponsored project about the teaching of combinatorics through Guided Discovery. The textbook which grew out of this project (as well as the entire source archive) is available for download below.

The Guided Discovery Archive

The Guided Discovery Archive contains, various pdf versions of the textbook, LaTeX source files, hint files, and a pdf version of the book containing answers to exercises.

Important Notes:
  1. The contents of the archive are released under the terms of the GNU Free Documentation License (FDL), a copy of which is contained in the archive.
  2. The contents of the archive are released in "as is" condition, which in particular means that the state of the source files is not in agreement with the pdf versions of the text. A README offers some guidance.
  3. Many people have already used the textbook in courses at various universities throughout the country. It is the hope of the Bogart family that this project continues to grow to completion with the efforts of those who download this archive.
