[Haskell-cafe] Learning Haskell

I am exploring the possibility of learning Haskell. I am not a 
professional programmer, nor do I have a CS or Math degree.

I do play and program with Python, Smalltalk (Squeak), Javascript, 
explored Erlang some.

I do not have a strong math background.

Is lack of strong math background a major hindrance to learning Haskell?

Also, I understand Haskell's benefits for programming larger projects.
But how does it do on programming in the small?
ie: using Haskell where I might have used Python for scripting?

Thanks for any help and wisdom.
