Mathematics Courses

Students need four credits in high school mathematics in order to earn an Ohio high school diploma. Algebra 2 is required by state law. The recommendation is that students complete Algebra 2 by the end of their third year in high school. Algebra 2 is the highestlevel math course required for graduation. The other three math credits must be high school level courses. More information on Ohio's mathematics graduation requirements is found here.
