This study uses a nationally representative sample of students that were in grade 10 in 1980 that took the High School and Beyond Survey. The findings indicate that math courses do play an important role in predicting postsecondary education success for both men and women and students of different ethnic backgrounds, and students that took more advanced math courses on average had higher earnings.
