The National Council of Teachers of Mathematics has recently (1989) elevated discrete mathematics to the level of algebra, geometry, and calculus by including a separate discrete mathematics standard in their Standards document. Indeed, the use of discrete mathematics has an essential part in the development of students' mathematical power in a society grounded in technology and communication. In particular, discrete mathematics includes and addresses: Social Decision Making, Fair Division, Election Theory, Graph Theory, Counting Techniques, Matrix Models, and Mathematical Iteration/Recursion.
