I just started to read Thomas H. Cormen's book "Introduction to algorithms" (2nd edition) and just figured out that from first 40 pages I'd understand about 30%-40%.
Can you help to realize what parts of math must I know to be more familiar with that book and/or algos at all? Also important to know in what sequence should I study that things.
Let's say I'm starting from arithmetic then algebra+geometry. Then what? Heard about math logic (right?).
That can help me to know such important things and be ready to help to my children.
Just help if you can, please.
