Discrete Mathematics
I believe that it would be helpful to have Discrete Mathematics in your arsenal. It will be great for college students that have a hard time with all the logic that goes into it. Thank you for taking the time to read my post.

I'm inclined to agree. In addition to Khan Academy, I spend some time taking courses from thegreatcourses.com, including one on discrete math by Arthur Benjamin. But courses there aren't free, and they aren't interactive, and you don't score any Khan Academy energy points for taking them.
There are new courses under development all the time at the academy, but resources are limited, and requests for new subjects are numerous.

I second the suggestion / request for Discrete Mathematics! Especially since Khan Academy is trying to encourage and grow people in programming and logic, (and with Discrete Mathematics being one of the major pillars / foundations of Computer Science), it would make an excellent addition and help to further grow students interested in Computer Science.

I agree so much about this. I will be taking a Duel Enrollment course for this in senior year (high school). I go on KA a lot to practice the math I am learning. I could keep up in the class and maybe even try to get ahead of the other students. Also it could help the KA users who intend to go into majoring in Computer Science

Sal, we need you!
I posted about this on another zendesk issue here.
This is what I said:
After having been a hobbyist programmer for several year, going back to school and taking up computer science officially, and after 5 years of study off and on, taking a course Discrete Mathematics ( including Boolean Algebra ) did three things for me.
 Changed the way I think about logic
 Changed the way I write software
 Raised my level of literacy when researching various topics in the literature.
Boolean Algebra is fundamentally important to computer science. A curriculum or body of learning resources in computer science ( as a science ) or in programming ( as a professional skill ) without Boolean Algebra is incomplete. :)
While Boolean Algebra is a formal system leading into Discrete Math, the entry point, the topic is so much richer: combinatorics, graph theory, generating functions.
I would love to see all of that!
School throws folks into the mix and asks them to make software by a deadline because that is what the industry wants, but without this kind of foundation, they are throwing them to the wolves.
I have an AA in Computer Science, if such a title means anything at all. :( The course I took was in the Information Technology curriculum, which is geared toward IT management. The choice of that course being required for IT, but not for an kind of CS makes zero sense.

MIT open courseware have a brilliant course taught by Prof. Tom Leighton which I found brilliant and not extremely difficult to follow.

A new request on this subject has been made here.
Everyone, please go there and help bring it to the top of recent activity. 
Here is why there has been no movement on this (from Qurora)

While I agree with this feature request, there are other resources you can use in the meantime. Try reading Mathematics for Computer Science, the course text for MIT 6.042. You should be able to download the latest version here:
