When it comes to Math, I'm a complete dummy. It feels like I'm trying to understand Chinese with maybe a few useless clues that keep my brain looping over and over the same issue causing a mental block. It's like when your computer suddenly freezes and it looks like it's doing nothing but in fact it's trying to work something out. When I watch videos / search for solutions, I don't understand what is being put forward. I'll get what is being said to an extent and then I will be confused and not know what to do. I will be shown an example, and I will be able to follow it, but as soon as something new appears, something that hasn't been covered, I'm stuck because I don't know how to go about the problem. I literally need someone to guide me step by step and only when I get the ?a ha!? moment, only then I understand what is going on and can work with it. Getting to the ?a ha!? moment is the trick. I kind of forgot where I was heading with this thread because I burnt my tongue over boiling tea that I literally drooled over my desk. Hmm... oh yes, I was going to say that when it comes to Math, even when I understand certain concepts, it feels like my brain is an Intel Pentium III 1.00 GHz Processor trying to run Crysis. Alright, maybe that was slightly over exaggerated but you get the point? I'm just slow when it comes to processing information. My main point in creating this thread was to find out whether or not I really need to learn Math to be able to program? I'm mainly looking at web programming, scripts and stuff, lets say a mini social networking platform, a billing system, etc. These are just a few examples, I'm not trying to make the next social networking platform, I'm kind of looking to learn programming to be able to create tools/platforms that will suite my needs. But I'd also be interested in the likes of Java. Is Math really necessary, or is it only important for advanced and complex things? I really don't see how I'd use Math anywhere in my future, and I certainly do not feel pulled towards learning it. But if I'm going to try to learn it, I will need to go back to the basics. It's just that I don't want to do this unless I really need it. Learning Math is like learning a language, it takes a lot of effort and I really don't see the point in learning a language you're never really going to use. Sometimes I wonder if certain people are born with better processors in their brains or if I'm just stupid.
