This is only one type of programming, I'm sure other types of programming requires mathematics, like systems programming, cryptography, graphics, machine learning, deep learning, etc.

Isn't it counterproductive in programming textbooks to emphasize on mathematics & calculations to introduce programming concepts, when most of the programming seems to require formal logic.

My math skills are a stumbling blocks for me to improve my understanding of programming. I read official C programming book and I found it very interesting, they introduce things which aren't even introduced in many other C programming books but it also has exercises which requires mathematics, same is the case with many programming textbooks.

So what is more used in programming mathematics or logic?
