How much math does programming involve? I heard it involves some Pre Calculous and Calculous but just for games and interactive type programs. I only know a little algebra (i wanted to go into higher maths but my mom didn't let me.. so basically i was forced against my own will to take general math for my first two years of highschool! now i see kids that don't know simple long division and are in Pre Calculous..i couldn've taken algebra in 9th grade! oh well -_-)

I would want to become a programmer but I don't know if they teach Calculous in college and I'm almost positive they don't teach Algebra 2 (and i know i won't get enough time to take that in highschool) so any information would be appriciated thanks.
