Contrary to popular belief you do not need to be super strong or have advanced math education to code.

99% of coding only requires basic math skills and good algebra. Coding is basically an extended form of algebra.

Higher maths are rarely used in coding and when they are, it is typically abstracted into a library for the coder. Gaming engines use a lot of math to do their rendering, but even the most experienced game programmers normally know little or none of the advanced math but instead program against a game engine which hides and does all the math for them.
