Do you need math to be a computer technician?

Asked: Do you need math to be a computer technician?

I study Liberal Arts, but I do not want this in my life. When I was a little kid I always wanted to fix computers. I really want to do is be around computers and software. My very first Gameinformer came in the mail when I was 10. I am obsessed with smart phones, I'm always up to date on what the manufacturers are doing. But I heard that you need math to be a computer technician.

It is just that since elementary school I've pretty much been always been adept with words, pretty capable with my writng. But have failed many, many math classes. In a classroom, math on a board looks like another language, and I have to strain to remeber any formulas and steps. My memory is just wiped clean after that point. A vert pestful hinderance this has always been for me.

I strongly desire a career out of this. Are there any computer majors that require little or less math but have mostly to do with hardware instead?

You don't really need math in most jobs in IT, but it's a big pro if you're a good abstract thinker. People who are good in math often are good abstract thinkers. Basically, you don't need math, but it's a good thing if you're good in it.

You still can get around if you're not good in math with some IT jobs. Jobs like software engineering probably aren't a good choice though. It requires a lot of abstract thinking. Mathematical knowledge helps a lot in the field of software engineering and probably networking too.
