I would suggest that the Maths would be a key starting point of attack,
since most of the other fields will make at least some use of Maths.
A basic appreciation of the rules of algebra is probably essential.
Note that there is a distinction between Maths and Arithmetic,
I have known individuals who are great at Arithmetic, doing complex sums in their heads,
but as soon as someone replaces one of the numbers with a letter they just can't grasp the concept at all.
I am personally rather the other way about, ask me to add 4 to 5 and I start counting fingers,
however the (basic) concept and rules of algebra just seem so obvious, I can't appreciate how anyone would have difficulty.
(obviously it does get difficult when the problems advance too far beyond the basic).
Great minds...
Just noticed Pmb posted a very similar statement just seconds before me
