Coding and calculus or geometry?

I want to work about create a website, Web application or moblie application.
It's in a Computer Science. right?
but now, I study in ComSci. It's doesn't make me happy.
Because i have to study in many mathematics , geometry and calculus.

I think i can understand in Coding, Algorithm planning. But i can't hold my head into Geometry or calculus.

What should i do?

Calculus is really fun. Have you looked at the 3Blue1Brown series about Calculus?

Full disclosure: I used to tutor calculus students. It is my favorite class, ever. I always feel sad when people say they don't like calculus.

Calculus gang unite!

I get that Math isn't for everyone, but I loved tutoring calculus so much 🥰

This is a common misconception: Computer Science is not about development. Actually, programming is a tool to learn CS, but not the goal. Same with Calculus/Algebra/Statistics/etc. they are tools to learn the theory of computers. If you can make it through those more theoretical Math courses, you'll get to some really fun parts (e.g. different programming disciplines, software engineering, computer/software architecture, etc.)

About what you should do: I'm sorry, I don't have an answer. It has to come from you. The good thing is that, if you are still in the Mathematics part, you are likely at an early stage (normally those courses are at the beginning of the program) and have opportunities to change majors without much impact (hopefully). If you choose something different that makes you happier, great! And if you decide to continue with CS, you won't regret it in the long run either.
