Does software development require math?

Strictly speaking, no. You don’t need to be well-versed in calculus or be able to perform complex computations in your head in the snap of a finger.

However, you will need to be able to think mathematically and logically to succeed in software development. Programming logic is a foundational topic—the ability to design and debug systems and successfully navigate progressive “if/then” logic requires mathematical thinking.

Students with an aptitude for math may have an advantage, but a career in software development doesn’t require advanced math skills.
