Should every student take an advanced math course in college no matter what major or minor? How important is math when one is studying science?

I love everything about science, but math oftentimes translates as a foreign language. I find myself eager to be outside doing labs and sampling but dreading sitting at a desk punching in numbers on a calculator. Although I don't like math, I know it's a crucial part of education. I would like...

As a civil engineer, what percent of your time would you say per week you spend on site helping to organize construction efforts and people and what percent of your time do you spend in an office making calculation and coming up with designs?
