Is there any benefits to learning calculus for computer programming other than just developing better logic skills. I'm thinking about going back to school for computer science but I can't gather the motivation to brush up on my math in preparation of the calculus courses I would need to take.
With no knowledge of the other sciences (physics, chemistry, biology, medicine, etc.) is there anything that I could use a knowledge of calculus to create?
BTW, my long-term goal is to create programs for the web and smartphones, as well as doing web design. Is calculus going to be beneficial to me in any way at all?
