    Trigonometry, calculus, analytical geometry. You will definitely need to take physics. Why wouldn't you want to if you are going to major in physics?

    Make sure you can really make a living in that field before you decide on your college major.

    Somehow I get the feeling you are not very enthusiatic about this. You are not interested in astrophysics just because you like watching scifi movies, are you? If you were serious about this, you wouldn't have to ask "what math" you need to take: All that's available (if your high school offers calculus, don't think twice!). You also wouldn't have to ask if you *NEED* to take physics. What kind of question is that for an aspiring astrophysicist? You will *WANT* to take all the physics classes you can fit into your schedule.
