## Is discrete math harder than continuous math?

You can see an example of accelerated undergrad courses for discrete math and continuous math ; both of them are quite difficult (some may find one more difficult than the other but that is probably primarily motivated by which one they are more interested in).

**What’s the difference between discrete math and continuous math like calculus?**

Continuous mathematics is, roughly speaking, math based on the continuous number line, or the real numbers. In discrete mathematics, you’re working with distinct values – given any two points in discrete math, there aren’t an infinite number of points between them.

### What subject is discrete mathematics?

Discrete mathematics is the branch of mathematics dealing with objects that can assume only distinct, separated values. Logic is the formal mathematical study of the methods, structure, and validity of mathematical deduction and proof.

**Is algebra Discrete Math?**

“Discrete Math” is not the name of a branch of mathematics, like number theory, algebra, calculus, etc. Rather, it’s a description of a set of branches of math that all have in common the feature that they are “discrete” rather than “continuous”.

## What is the difference between discrete math and continuous math?

Continuous mathematics deals with real numbers. Recall that between any two real numbers there are infinitely many additional real numbers. There are no gaps in the real number line that continuous math operates on. Discrete math deals with sets of items, numbers for example,…

**What is the best way to learn discrete mathematics?**

The best way to know what discrete mathematics is about is probably just to study some texts or papers in discrete mathematics. Some people like discrete mathematics more than continuous mathematics, and others have a mindset suited more towards continuous mathematics – people just have different taste and interests.

### What is the difference between discrete mathematics and real numbers?

In contrast to real numbers that have the property of varying “smoothly”, the objects studied in discrete mathematics – such as integers, graphs, and statements in logic – do not vary smoothly in this way, but have distinct, separated values.

**What is the difference between discrete and continuous modelling?**

In applied mathematics, discrete modelling is the discrete analogue of continuous modelling. In discrete modelling, discrete formulae are fit to data. A common method in this form of modelling is to use recurrence relation.
