I'd like to point something out - physics is as close to math as you can get while still pretending to be about the real world. (Philosophy tries, but is too theoretical to be real.)

Plus, you're still missing the point - learning Math for programmers isn't about learning how to solve mathematical problems, it's about thinking analytically.

I shouldn't have to say this, but any code, unless otherwise stated, is untested
