My daughter is a Junior n HS and deciding on next year courses.

She is not planning to take any math course in her senior year as she is taking AP Calculus BC this year and already took AP Calculus AB and AP Statistics last year. So, in HS she is taking only 3 years of Math.

She is planning to take health science as major.

Question is does colleges look for 4 years of Math? Anybody has similar experience?

please advice

If she is going to be a CS or Math major in college, then it would be advantageous to take a higher maths class like Linear Algebra, Multivariable Calculus, etc. But if she going to be a humanities major, she is perfectly fine with her coursework and doesn't need to take any more math classes.

The typical 4 year track looks like Algebra, Geometry, Algebra 2, Pre-Calc for very average students.

For advanced students it looks like Geometry, Algebra 2, Pre-Calc and Calc AB.

For really advanced students its like Pre-calc, AP Calc AB, AP Calc BC, and some higher math either at a community college (DE) or online.

Good luck.

It depends on where she wants to go to school and what major she plans on pursuing. Most schools publicize their High School class requirements online, and I would look into that. Also, majors can play a role in this too. Even if the university doesn't require 4 years, if she wants to go into the STEM field, 4 years will be highly beneficial.

Some colleges require 4 years of math, so it depends on where she is applying
