    In every 3D game there is quite a bit of math. In many useful programs, there is some use of math. If you want to make a calculator, you need to use some math .
    Do not make direct eye contact with me.

    I've used set theory, boolean algebra, and calculus in my programs, so yeah, you could say that one needs math for programming. If you're doing game programming, you need the math necessary to model movement and know when two lines intersect, what is viewable to the user, etc. If you plan on majoring in computer science, you're going to get quite a bit of math.

    "The computer programmer is a creator of universes for which he alone is responsible. Universes of virtually unlimited complexity can be created in the form of computer programs." -- Joseph Weizenbaum.

    "If you cannot grok the overall structure of a program while taking a shower, you are not ready to code it." -- Richard Pattis.
