My career involves lots of trigonometry and a few other specialised subjects. That's good: I'd always hated mathematics at school, and now I've learned to love it. It gave me the balls to attempt programming, which was another bonus.
The way I look at mathematics now is rather like this: the most basic skill is transposition of formulae. That's the grammar, the syntax. Learn that, and the rest is just vocabulary.
