Great question, and thanks for your interest! You'll be fine to read this book if you know how to program in a high level language, and have solid high school level math skills -- manipulating equations, using variables / solving for a variable, functions, etc. You don't need to remember almost any specifics from high school like solving linear equations or trig functions. I've tried to make it as accessible as possible, thinking of the average math background of professional programmers I've worked with.
Thanks, Paul! Exactly what I was looking for, and I can't wait to dive in!
There's a pretty cool trend happening around subjects such as this. The Joy of X is in-line, just not programming-centric.
Thanks again, Paul!
Get meta with me! What pursues us is our own obsessions! But not this tiny ad:
