A bit about me- I am a music major, and am about to register for my last undergrad class EVER. I have always been good with computers, and a sizable chunk of life right now is editing and manipulating digital audio. I am a math retard, I never got past algebra II in high school, and I have not taken a math class in 5 years. I am considering taking COSC1410 INTRO TO COMPUTER SCIENCE I. It has always interested me. However I have no desire to take anything I can’t handle which is why I am pretty sure I won’t go through with it. The reason? Prerequisites: MATH 1330 and credit for or concurrent enrollment in MATH 1431. The first one is precal and the second is calculus. The course description says “Computer organization, introduction to structured programming, C programming language, and algorithm design.” The last one sort of scares me. How much math will be involved in this class?? Is a working knowledge of precal and such absolutely essential, or will I be able to figure it out as I go? It has almost totally scared me away. Still, the curiosity remains. Thoughts?
