I am a freshman college and need to finalize my major in the pretty soon. We've been taking 'core' classes, and I am not doing very well in math. Or rather, I'm a bit slower than others with problem solving but I wasn't sure if this was a *DIRECT* correlation with programming.
FUN FACT: I failed in math in my high school final year and was denied admission into an engineering college at first. I repeated an entire year and the rest is history ;)
Frankly, according to me, there is no direct application of maths in programming. Programming is all about logic. And no doubt, people who are good in math are generally very good with logic.The only role that math plays in programming is that it trains your mind to think in the most logical manner and to analyze all consequences and possibilities for a given problem.You can totally be awesome at programming even if you are slow in math.And on the hindsight, once you start feeling comfortable with programming, you will start becoming faster(as you put it) at math.
