This is why I always carry a plastic bag and industrial zipties
metamourge905927dWell, I gotta say I never needed calculus.
Never really understood it either.
However, trigonometry, Vector arithmetic and probability are fairly interesting and easy.
At least to the degree I learned it.
Nanos1020427dI'm reminded when I was in maths class, I wanted to know how to do square roots, but the teacher told us they don't teach that anymore, just press a button on the calculator, and asked me why did I want to know how to do it manually ?
I replied, that someone has to code that button on the calculator..

The whole sentence is amazing. Usage of beyond. Listing off multiple examples. An unholy desire to find the geometric properties of a sandwich.
Do you know who talks like that? Me! When I have time to write a response. And you overheard that? Whoever said that must have high linguistic intelligence.
Was it a woman? Women are more likely on average to have high mathematical abilities when possessing a high linguistic intelligence. So AI might not be too far off. In men, it is more common that those traits are negatively correlated.
I guess there might be some dev jobs where you don't need any of those.
Maybe backend stuff.
But for frontend I think you will need pythagoras and trig at some point.
By the way, is algebra considered beyond basic arithmetic?
I think it would be hard to avoid, too.
