Go figure

It is time to confront the maths bullies. Very little maths is required for a career in biological science, biochemistry, pharmacology, genetics and chemistry.

These university subjects drop any heavy maths requirement. Welcome creative people to science. I have had a 35-year research career without understanding a word of calculus.
