    Do you need to be good at math for computer science?

    How much of a hindrance would it be if you make a lot of tiny mistakes at math if you want to take a programming/software engineering course at college? On the other side though you are good at the logic/creative aspect of solving problems in programming, would that be outweighed by my math incompetence? This wont be my major or anything, just have to pick a minor and I dont want to suffer with it

    i'm pretty sure that the university i went to required you to take the entire calc sequence for computer science. my buddy is getting his phd in computer science and he has his masters in math. think you need it man

    3rd year computer science major checking in

    to get a computer science degree you are going to have to be good at math (calculus, linear algebra, stats, discrete mathematics). either try really hard or go to a community college and do a two year degree. im not sure about the requirements for a minor though, definitely look into that. you probably will need to do some kind of math though.

    Yes you do. Universities require Comp Sci majors to take calculus.

    IMO yes. Why do you make mistakes in math? Poor memory retention of procedures/formulas? If it's something along those lines, it will be the same in CS... I too took a few CS courses to possibly minor, but I fuking hated it.
