Abstract. Discrete mathematics is one of the most important parts of the introduction to programming. Although known as the basis of writing good software and its usage is necessary, the students have many difficulties while gaining the competency to apply it in software projects. In order to make it a little bit easier for learners, an additional course Discrete Mathematics and Programming was conducted in the Informatics major in the New Bulgarian University. Its objectives, conduction, some exemplary tasks and homework are presented in this paper. The difficulties in the learning process and different approaches to reduce them are discussed.
