I'm a big fan of the spectral decomposition theorem. Diagonalized matrices
are much easier to operate on computationally
Good wiki rabbit hole https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Spectral_theorem

I personally enjoy modeling economus-sapien and randomizing it's traversal
through a graph of goods.
Uh... Math? Well, bucket optimization, distinance minimization and a lot of
regression.
Project Euler and Project Rosalind are fun for interesting math problems
with savvy solutions

What specific math / math problems about computer science do you find
interesting?
Good answers should be fairly specific -- something you could study in an
heavily caffeinated afternoon or weekend. Answers like "linear algebra" or
"combinatorics" have applications to CS bit they are too broad.
Of course, links to materials are appreciated
