I imagine you'll get an interesting set of answers for this question. My take:

- You can do the 9-5 with very little (probably none beyond high school) maths

- If you want to do interesting things, learn some maths. You'll
probably find you learn faster when you're motivated. Learn what you
need to solve your problems and after a while you'll find your
mathematical knowledge grows and it becomes interesting in its own

- Discrete maths is the most common topic taught to CS students in
depts that have lame maths requirements that don't require the
standard engineering maths.
