The math of quantum mechanics is predominantly linear algebra. Depending on the focus and applications explored, there may likely be an emphasis on group theory as well.

Of course, the best answer to any of these questions is the instructor themself. Only they can tell you what their course will cover.

I would have never guessed that you had an interest in quantum computing, qualgorithm!
