How much math is involved in computer science??

What is the hardest level of Math involved in a Computer Science undergraduate degree? I am currently struggling in Calculus 1 and I was wondering how often this math is used. How hard does it get? Other math courses I need are Data Structure, Discrete Structures, Linear Algebra and Intro to Algorithmsfree netflix tech news android 9.

hi Jacobcullen

Welcome to the forum.

I've taught computer science to A level and no calculus was required.  Working in number bases other than decimal would be useful eg. binary, hexadecimal maybe octal.  I had done logic (sometimes called propositional calculus) at university and this was very useful for understanding NAND gates and FLIPFLOPs for example.
