Math And The Computer Science Major

JM_the_Great Math/CS double major (1203 comments)

I'm actually a Math/CS double major at Georgia Tech... The two subjects are so integrated these days - they're completely inseperable. Most Math people work on computers all day, and most CS people deal with Math constantly (unless they're '1337 d00ds 7h47 kn0w ASP and can make a 5h177y website). Even last semester, I had a proofs class which was clearly the domain of Math - but it was taught by the CS department. Additionally, our Intro-to-CS class uses Scheme - which is based on lambda calculus - a mathematical construct.

I think if CS majors stopped bitching about having to learn Math, they'd be much better off. Understanding the connections between the two will only improve your understanding of both.
