when i went to college, i saw a poster that said:

"psychology is applied biology,

biology is applied chemistry,

chemistry is applied physics,

and physics is applied mathematics"

so i majored in math, i got half way through a master's degree before i realized that math is applied logic. (i'm not sure what comes after logic, but that's for another time).

anyhow - if you're gonna get deep into some math, pick up a book on symbolic logic and learn the rules of inference. it will most likely be just as much fun as math, and it will make math your bitch.
