You basically got to learn the maths that you want to apply the computer science you learn to, like Number Theory, Graph Theory etc.

For eg. Pick up a Number Theory book see Euclid's method of calculating the GCD and then program it.

Hi , thanks for your reply. I am actually looking to something to understand/ reading the symbols of Maths in CS materials. For e.g Automata, Lamda calculs.. the point I am stuck on understanding the explanations those have used maths syntax. Any foundation material to clear this part? – nish1013 Nov 8 '12 at 9:31
I think you might what you are looking for is Discrete Structure books... or you could try to get see these books...… – Dreamer78692 Nov 8 '12 at 9:45
