Default College classes question

I want to test the waters with computers and I'm thinking about taking Programming Logic and Design for starters. I hear there is lots of math involved with programming, and that kind of scares me away from it. Can anyone tell me what kind of math is involved and how hard it is? Thanks.

It depends on what you're doing, but you probably won't go beyond fairly basic algebra for a beginners' programming class.

I took visual basic... and there's geometry (just simple if then statemets) but if you go farther... calculus... yeah.

If-then statements are logic, not geometry. But yes, more advanced programming can involve any type of math. However, basic programs will only require algebra, if that.
