Course Description

Discrete Math is needed to see mathematical structures in the object you work with, and understand their properties. This ability is important for software engineers, data scientists, security and financial analysts (it is not a coincidence that math puzzles are often used for interviews). We cover the basic notions and results (combinatorics, graphs, probability, number theory) that are universally needed. To deliver techniques and ideas in discrete mathematics to the learner we extensively use interactive puzzles specially created for this specialization. To bring the learners experience closer to IT-applications we incorporate programming examples, problems and projects in our courses.

Coursera is really good. Introduction to Discrete Mathematics for Computer Science | Coursera https://www.coursera.org/specializations/discrete-mathematic...

Alexander Shen is one of the professors back in school his book helped me in stuff related to competitive programming.

I took the discrete math specialization https://www.coursera.org/specializations/discrete-mathematic... but I already had took a course at college, the coursera material was really helpful to fill my gaps.

The Coursera/UC series on discrete mathematics [1] looks like a good introduction.
