    Depends on what you're trying to write. Most of the math isn't associated with Java itself, but actually with computer science in general and what it is you're trying to write (for example, a CAS would take a ton of math).

    FYI, most of the times when writing computer programs, there's a lot of Discrete Mathematics, Boolean Algebra, and statistics. Other than that, you don't delve that much into calculus, ODE's/PDE's/Higher math unless that's what your program is dealing with.

    Game programming can tend to use some maths as well.
