This workbook provides discussions, programming assignments, projects, and class exercises revolving around the “Knapsack Problem” (KP), which is widely a recognized model that is taught within a typical Computer Science curriculum. Throughout these discussions, we use KP to introduce or review topics found in courses covering topics in Discrete Mathematics, Mathematical Programming, Data Structures, Algorithms, Computational Complexity, etc. Because of the broad range of subjects discussed, this workbook and the accompanying spreadsheet files might be used as part of some CS capstone experience. Otherwise, we recommend that individual sections be used, as needed, for exercises relevant to a course in the major sequence. Each section, save for the Introduction, is written so that it can be presented independently of any other.
