Do I need strong mathematical bases to work in the memory subsystem?

Depends what you mean by "strong math basics". You'll *definitely* need to
understand decimal/hexadecimal/binary/octal and how to convert between
them. Understanding algebra is useful.
If you've had some intro to complexity theory so you understand why an O(N^2)
algorithm is usually worse than one that's O(N log N), that helps. Also,
knowing enough computing theory to understand what a finite state machine is,
and why to use one, and how to write code to implement one, is useful.
You *probably* don't need calculus or deep number theory or a lot of other
pure math.
Programming in the kernel doesn't require any more math than what's required
for competent programming in userspace.
