SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Utah high school seniors might soon be required to take math.

The proposal is among many recommendations being considered by the State Board of Education to improve math education. Students now are required to take three years of math between ninth and 12th grades to graduate.

Under the proposal, students would still need three years but one of those years would have to be during their senior year.

Educators say students can struggle in college math classes if they go without math classes the last year or two of high school.

A State Office of Education committee on Friday unveiled dozens of other recommendations designed to improve math education.
