CS-unfriendly:

http://www.ck12.org/book/CK-12-Algebra-I---Second-Edition/r10/section/1.5/
(numeric functions only)

http://www.stitz-zeager.com/ College Algebra, 3rd edition
(numeric functions only)

http://www.cbtricks.com/miscellaneous/tech_publications/neets/basic_math_and_algebra.pdf
(navy textbook)

More CS-friendly:

A First Course in Mathematics Concepts for Elementary School Teachers
http://faculty.atu.edu/mfinan/2033/con1book.pdf
(more open-ended, hinting at non-numeric: "An example of a non reflexive
relation is the relation "is the father of" on a set of people since no
person is the father of themself.")

http://www.mathsisfun.com/sets/function.html
(mostly numeric but emphasis on sets, where many of the examples are
non-numeric)
http://www.mathsisfun.com/sets/sets-introduction.html

Even more CS-friendly

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Function_%28mathematics%29
(Wikipedia has some clearly non-numeric examples, e.g. color-based)

http://mathworld.wolfram.com/String.html
(string, alphabet, word, code all given formal / mathematical spin)

http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/Discrete_Mathematics/Functions_and_relations
(starts out with non-numeric example)

http://library.thinkquest.org/2647/algebra/funcbasc.htm
(starts with non-numeric examples)
