I'm thinking about majoring in chemistry. I like science but I'm not so good at math. I know physics is very math intensive, but what about chem. For example, if 100% of physics involves math, what % of Chemistry involves math? Also, what level of math do you need for chemistry? Do you need to excel at math or can you just get by taking Calc I,II? I hear that Physicists use high level calculus daily, but chemists don't need that much calculus just algebra for their job(Lab Tech,etc.).

on the other hand, you can specialize in physical chemistry- that will involve more physic classes, a physics minor if you will.
