Where should I be at with math before I start studying physics?

I'm pretty awful at math right now. I tried taking the basic physics class when I was a senior in high school but I couldn't keep up with everyone else. So I dropped the class 2 weeks in. I sincerely want to understand physics but I just can't wrap my mind around it yet. I'm using khanacademy right now to study and it's helping a lot. But I started from the very beginning with math on there, because I want to master it all. I want it all to be fresh in my head as well. So, before I start trying to study physics again, how proficient should I be in math before I can understand everything I'm learning without trying TOO hard. I'd like to get into architecture or even car design within about 5 or 6 years. (planning on doing military and other things first) Thanks in advance!

You should be very good in math. Algebra, geometry, and trigonometry are musts. Calculus could help later on.
