I don't know about Europe, but, in Japan, math courses are usually integrated, too. In Junior High School (7th 9th) they usually take Math I, II, III. In 10th, they take Math I (different course, but the same title), then after that it varies. Usually starting around 11th grade, they start "tracking" students into college bound and noncollege bound, and the college bound group is usually further split into math/science and humanities. Some schools will further split math/science group in 12th grade into "hard" math/sci and "soft" math/sci (nursing, vet, medicine, etc.).
