Graduate level math is probably referring to graduate school in college/higher education. Someone who gets their graduate degree has either their masters or doctoral degree. When it says they don't need graduate level math, they are talking about math classes that would commonly be taken by someone who is acquiring a graduate degree.

  • It doesn't mean they don't need to take any math classes to understand it, it just means that they don't need to take any high level college math to understand it.

A full sentence would be helpful. For example,

I can balance my checking account without needing graduate-level math.

It means basic math skills are sufficient to solve the problem.

This kind of statement can be used to de-emphasize the importance of a given skill (in this case the value of graduate-level math).

  • I should have added an example to my answer and explained it. Thanks for expounding.
