Being a computer science major, I need to take lots of different kinds of math courses. One of these classes is calculus. Now I'd like to say that I like calculus as much as I like discrete mathematics or linear algebra, but that's not the case. Gone are the days when we would take derivatives of polynomials and that was it. Now it's like "Oh what's that, you've just finally understood u-substitution? Great because now we're going to start integration by parts. Also, remember the Cartesian coordinate system? Yeah so we're going to plot things based on r and theta now, not x and y." FML. I love math, I just don't like this particular area of it. Saying this, I do have to ensure everyone that I do understand its importance and usefulness. Calculus is a very useful tool for optimization problems, especially for civil and mechanical engineers. I'm just not all that into it.
More discrete math please!
