    How good at math do you need to be to major in Computer Science?

    I gotta admit math is my weakest subject. Furthest math class I made it to in HS was pre-Calc

    I've always been a nerd at heart and love computers/electronics, so I figured why not "do something you love". Plus it beats the hell out of majoring in psych/criminal justice when I have no intentions of going to graduate or law school.

    The actual computer science stuff you don't really need to be math heavy at all and will be able to get through knowing just pre-calc.

    However, it probably depends on your program. Mine, for example, required me to take Calc I and II, Discrete Math, and a couple of Calculus based Physics courses, all of which are obviously math heavy.

    So while the CS classes aren't really "math heavy" a lot of the other stuff they'll have you take is, which might be a problem for you if you don't dedicate yourself to it.

    Can you even solve this problem: 48/2(9+3)

    If no, then you can't do CS.

    I think it depends on the school. At mine, we only had to go up to Calculus 2, plus a couple other high-level math classes (discrete math, some others I can't remember, etc.) Computer Engineers had it worse, they had to go up to Calc 4 I think.

    at my school I have to take as many math classes as engineering kids

    but even if your not good at math (not my strongest either), you just need to have the drive to actually want to learn it and its not so bad

    you need to be good at math unless you are going into web design.

    everything else has a lot of math behind it... data analytics, graphics works, embedded systems.

    " Has anyone ever tried using a power tool to masturbate? Well, one day the batteries died in my vibrator mid session and left me desperate to climax. My husband has been working on building the shed in the back yard, in which my mind quickly panned to the power drill he has been using. I took the power drill and drilled a hole straight up the center and voila, a fully functional high speed rotating dildo." Secret Society of Women

    It takes math, but actually using Math in a lot of applications? Really depends what field you go into. What seperates good programmers from bad programmers is their ability to logically think out a problem and design a solution, not their math skills.

    That said most degree's require a fairly high level of math.

    Most out here require
    3 Calculus Classes
    Discrete Math
    Linear Algebra(Matrix Math)
    Statistics

    That said you also have to have a lot of general education stuff like Physics, which is quite calculus intense at parts.
    Its not that hard, honestly the main reason i switched from EE to Software was because I kept failing hard at math and EE is ALL math.
