Abstract How to integrate mathematical thinking more fully into the computer science curriculum is a perennial problem for CS educators. A key part of that integration is designing the discrete math course so that its relevance to programming and software development is evident. A discrete math course that also introduces programming in the functional style provides an ideal context for this integration, as well as having additional curricular benefits. We report on our experience teaching a course on discrete mathematics and functional programming, give the outline for such a course, and survey the available resources.
