If your math is a bit weak, you may want to pick up some study guides on the subject. Speaking from my personal experience in university, I took four
calculus courses, a linear algebra course, a statistics course, a differential equations course, and a numerical methods course. Depending what kind
of stuff you want to be researching, I can think of applications for all of those in nanotechnology in one branch or another.
Also, just because you may be struggling with math now, does not mean there is no hope. When I was in high school, I did quite well in physics,
except for two units: electric circuits, and optics. Yet I went into electrical engineering and just graduated this April. I also took a fourth year
optics course and got an A-, despite not understanding a single thing in high school on the topic. How? Because I worked quite hard in university,
and barely put any work in during high school.
I firmly believe that if a person works hard, they can do well on any subject. Some subjects will come more naturally than others, as my university
marks will attest, but with the proper work ethic, you should do fine.
