    What are the levels of math you need to know to go into quantum physics, or astro-physics, or any physics for that matter?

    Pretty high...Calculus is a must...Geometry is a must.Maybe a little (more) functional analysis.

    Depends on the subject.

    I would strongly recommend linear algebra. Of course, "real" quantum mechanics also uses group theory so some abstract algebra wouldn't hurt!
