Discrete Math

Discrete mathematics is a content area usually considered to be a middle or high school topic. The groundwork can be laid throughout the grades with simple problems that explore permutations and combinations (How many outfits can you put together? How many ways are there to organize a line of 6 people?).

A few discrete math problems for elementary students are listed below.
