A minimum of two years of mathematics taken at the high school level are required for high school graduation. For most students, this requirement may mean they must pass Geometry, Algebra 2, or Pre-Calculus to graduate from high school, depending on the initial math course taken in high school.
The completion of an Algebra 1 course in middle school or at the high school level is required by the state of California for a high school diploma.
Four years of mathematics are recommended for college-bound students.
