Do not worry about your difficulties in Mathematics. I can assure you mine are still greater. - Albert Einstein 
Math doesn't always add up.
 
Math sometimes is a four-letter word. Dealing with equations, etc., with projects can sometimes be overwhelming ... especially to newbies. Unfortunately, it can't be avoided in many cases.
 
What level of math skills do you think are necessary to progress through the ranks of beginner, novice, and expert levels of competency in electronics hobbyism?
 
How does having only basic level math skills create limits on what can be done with electronics, or does it?

A 150 MHz RF Signal Generator for Your Test Bench
A 150 MHz SIGNAL GENERATOR FOR YOUR TEST BENCH

No test bench is complete until it has an RF signal source of some type. Here is a sweet general-purpose RF signal generator that won't take up much space and can be built on the cheap.  
The mathematical sciences particularly exhibit order, symmetry, and limitation; and these are the greatest forms of the beautiful. - Aristotle 
A Mathematics Engine For Microcontrollers
A MATHEMATICS ENGINE FOR MICROCONTROLLERS

Even though microcontrollers are magical, their math skills sometimes leave something to be desired. Let's find out how to connect a microcontroller to the TI-83 Plus graphing calculator for use as a coprocessor to help figure out some of the tougher equations.

Build a Headset Amplifier
BUILD A HEADSET AMPLIFIER

This amp can be driven by a CD or MP3 player, and can drive a good high fidelity headset of about 32 ohms, and as high as 600 ohms and beyond. Some high-end audio folks consider integrated circuit operational amplifiers not to be very good ... something about too many transistors in the signal path. This circuit uses all discrete components - no more and no less than required to provide wide bandwidth and low distortion.   
Mathematics, rightly viewed, possesses not only truth, but supreme beauty - a beauty cold and austere, like that of sculpture. - Bertrand Russel
