i have been reading around about physics degree gpa's and businesses looking at resumes and the first thing they see is gpa...etc... my question pertains to the importance of my gpa as a whole, or my gpa of math and physics classes alone. im asking this because my gpa isn't that high right now (3.2) but if my gpa in math and physics was set aside, my cumulative gpa is much higher (like 3.7 or 3.8). i am curious to know if that makes a difference when applying for jobs like being a quant, or even just physics research.

They both matter, but mostly employers care about your major CPA. In your case, since your GPA is higher when you include your non-technical courses you probably shouldn't break them out on your resume.
