    Here is a list of math subjects that I plan to learn. What I want to know is, what knowledge of mathmatics is useful in computer programming. By programming, I mean anything from programming, hacking, etc. The subjects that have a star next to them are what ive learn so far.


    Basic Math *
    Pre Algebra*
    Algebra 1 // Im learning this next year in 8th grade, but plan to learn it over this summer

    Geometry // I also plan on learning the subjects that are purple
    Algebra 2
    Trigonometry
    Precalculus
    Calculus 1
    Calculus 2
    Calculus 3

    Computaion Theory

    Real Analysis // The subjects in red I am unsure of , but am also a bit curious about
    Complex Analysis
    Abstract Algebra
    Point-Set Topology
    Set Theory
    Logic
    Differential Equations
    Number Theory
    Measure Theory

    Category Theory
    So far this isn't my entire plan. I most likely will not jump into some of the stuff below calculus 1, 2, and 3,
    but I hope to be pretty decent in mathmatics. What got me interested in math was the ps3 hacking with the ECSDA algorithms...I find thoughs really interesting even though I don't understand them at all . I've already figured out which programming languages I am going to learn, so now its just the mathmatics subjects I want to figure out. So if anyone is a mathmatician/programmer and would like to give me some thoughts on which mathmatics would benefit me the most and which ones I need or should learn then please post your opinion !

    Also I wasn't too sure whether this thread would be more for the programming questions section or the general section, so if a moderator sees this and would like to move this, its okay with me. Thanks!

    You have a lot of maths ahead of you, like A LOT. You really haven't seen anything yet, the difficulty increases so much with Calculus 2 and 3. To be honest I'm not a programmer but I do love maths and I'm at the top in my year of 150 at the subject, so, if I were you, I would just worry about learning all this hard shit first.

    If you ever need any help at all with maths then you can PM me, I'm more than happy to help people with it.

    Everything in purple besides computation theory. I can't really name everything I've learned cause there is a lot but anything you come across in school I will have covered.
