Mathematics is one of the sciences that can improve thinking skills and contribute to solving daily problems as well as the world of work. Some compulsory subjects in the Computer Science Education study program are in the field of mathematics. Also, one of the important things for students of Computer Science Education is programming ability. This fact underlined the purpose of this research. This study aims to examine whether there is a relationship between mathematical ability and programming ability of students of Computer Science Education. It employed a survey method with a correlational approach. The subject was 132 students of Computer Science Education. The technique sampling was a purposive random sampling. The quantitative data used to see the relationships were students' basic mathematics (BM) and basic programming (BP) data. The data was processed with IBM SPSS Statistics 25. Several previous studies revealed a relationship between these abilities descriptively. The difference with this research was quantitative testing the relationship between mathematical ability and programming ability. The finding of this study was that the average BM and BP scores of students have very small differences, which were 63.72 and 63.94. It can be concluded that there was a strong relationship between mathematical ability and programming ability of students of Computer Science Education.
