My understanding of science has always been limited by my lack of adequate math skills. Eventually I reach explanations and studies filled with equations, symbols and variables I don't understand and I find myself at a dead end. I've done pretty well with my limited skills, but I kind of want to understand more. I don't think I'll every understand it all, but I think I can do better then I'm doing now. In order to have a better understanding of science what types of math do I need to focus on learning?
