Root6888521dMath? Web development?
If you can do 2*3 you’re overqualified.
theabbie288021dMath as in calculus or basic math? Not knowing calculus is not considered to be bad in math. Web development uses negligible math.
IntrusionCM388921dI suck at math.
I think that math is not a hard requirement for programming.
Many times I found out that it's the other way round. Programming taught me math.
saucyatom108820dAs @Root said for web you probably don't need any.
Logic and basic math can be helpful, especially for lower level stuff and if you want to understand how a computer works. Understanding vectors is essential for free-form graphics, but you'll mostly use some framework which doesn't need much more than + and -.
Serious Maths (think Engineering level Analysis and Linear Algebra in University) are only necessary in some specialty fields (e.g. cryptography, research).
So: It depends, but for 95% in web you'll get along just fine knowing the difference between plus and minus.
Lyniven448720dDepends on your project, quite often you won't use maths at all as a web dev.
I worked on a few projects where a good level was necessary tho
