Hi, im almost colledge and i have to decide which course should i take, so im thinking of taking programming because im interrested in making game’s, i have a little bit knowlege about how to make games, thanks to Brackeys, so im thinking of, if i take programming do i need to be a math genius or atleast good? im not good at math so im having a problem finding an answer, i have a bit knowlege in math like algebra things that i saw that connects in programming and the (if statement) and a lot more stuff, so can anyone help me?

You need to be good with all kinds of math. Especially if you’re programming for games.

You’ll need; vector math, matrix math, physics to a certain extent, trigonometry, and those are just the ones you would use on a regular basis.

how about C#? im going to take it as my main language because it looks interresting, and i notice some highschool math like (if/then statement) in C# and some elementary math like those float, int, bool, and string… and i’ve heard that it does’t need a lot of math? or what means, not that many math needed? just like in brackeys tutorial’s, Physics migh’t be soo easy, applying force and some other stuff so it wont be a problem for me, the only problem in me is dividing and if i am right C# dont really need those computation like solving division like for example 5/5, if needed then the computer can compute it on its own? and what i mean is the only needed in programming or C# are the formula in math problems?

Could you say a little more clear then maybe I could understand what your saying and answer your question.

What he said and programming isn’t 100% math so don’t sweat it.  I’ve been practicing coding for a year now and I am getting better and better really quickely.
