Short answer: Yes
Long answer: It depends you mostly need it in languages like python ,javascript, etc. and sometimes in html,css, etc.

It depends on the context. In machine learning, yes, You need to know some math like Calculus etc.
In Web Development, you don’t need math that much.
In Game Development, you need Physics. So It really depends.

Yes

Maths is important in coding and programming

It's not really important but it's better to know certain arithmetic operators so we could know that if the program is either right or wrong

If you have the maths knowledge it is easier to lean and do coding

You don't need to be an expert in Mathematics in order to learn coding, but it will help if you know some basic mathematics.

Yes it is

NOT AT ALL!!! And honestly speaking, this is the Biggest misconception that most people have towards coding.
Yes, maths is essential for programming. And please bare in mind that Programming is NOT CODING! 👍

Yes mathematics is basic for programming
Because
Mathematics married to Electronics gives birth to Computer Science
Thats why Computer will work with power supply to perform calculations and comparisions

Looking back, my desire to learn Python has been motivated entirely by pure math problems. They mix like PB&J.

Just need basic math to generate logic in programming

Yes you need basic math and some math skills which are used in statisical analysis like permutation combination. Other than that, nothing more crazy or advanced!

Yeah also u need to know the basics of most maths like elective maths etc

Coding was invented through math, but because of the highly modular nature of coding, you don't always need knowledge in a certain math field to get from point a to point b. But by recognizing clever tools provided by a proper math education, you can often make a program that works far faster than your non-mathematical competition.
I just took a quiz here called "Consecutive Sums". They wanted me to generate a list and a 'for' loop to solve the following prompt:
Find the sum from zero through all the whole numbers up to a user-input integer.
I looked at the prompt, remembered a lesson from precalculus, and said "**** that."
What I used instead was the following code:
N = int(input())
print(int((N**2+N)/2))
Not using any lists, or iterative structures of any kind, just three lines of code implementing a simple algebra fact. Saved the interpreter a TON of processing, and the quiz still marked me correct.
Knowing versus not knowing (the right) math makes a night and day difference in your CS prospects.

I cheated on a prompt, that was about cheating on math homework by using python, by using math. And got the lowest effort correct answer. It was my Kobayashi Maru🤓

Yea maths is very important especially if you are doing binary code i especially don't understand some complicated maths but code is helping me understand mathematical fields maths teachers in secondary schools would never teach us,seeing your a fellow Nigerian so i guess you have asked your IT teacher whether you would get to write actual pieces of code and I'm sure the response was it is not for your level so I get where you are coming from

Is your question related to any of the tagged languages? you tagged many languages and your question was math related.
Search the forum, you're not the first to post this question.

But I suppose my posts suggest coding can be important/helpful in math, so at least the converse is true. That is, coding can be helpful for math

Yes, maths is very important to learning codes
