A minimum of three years of mathematics is required for graduation from high school. For students planning to attend a four-year college or university, Algebra I, Geometry, and Algebra II or HS Math I, II and III are required. For students planning to attend the University of California, four years of mathematics are recommended. Most private institutions have the same requirements. Four years of mathematics is highly recommended for college-bound students, especially those entering such technical fields as engineering, medicine, and the sciences.
