This story is about a young freshman in Computer Sciences who really hated Mathematics.
He was told by a senior that he only needed to survive the first two years, then, he would never have to deal with Mathematics again and could focus on programming…
Fast forward 3 years later, the once freshman is now a graduate but when asked about his greatest regret he replied:


My greatest regret…Is that I never knew Why Mathematics in CS!
I thought Mathematics wasn’t important in CS.. I have never been so wrong in all my life!


Some of you don’t know the importance of Mathematics, how it’s related to Computer Science or if we do really need it ?
The truth is, if you look around, you will find that everything around us is in fact applied Mathematics, like for example:
Video games, Image Processing, Movies, Algorithms and many other applications…
I bet you want to know how are those things even related to Mathematics?
