Does a recommendation letter for a Math class count as Science or Non-Science?

If I understand your question, you mean a letter from a math professor? I would say that would be non-science as math usually isn't considered part of the science departments.

but math is counted in the science gpa, which is really confusing me now..

Here is Tufts requirement just as a frame of reference:
"One letter from a Biology professor and;
One letter from a second science professor - Biochemistry, Chemistry, Math or Physics"

So it would depend on the school but I think this sounds pretty standard.

I'm getting one from a biology professor and another one from an oceanography professor.

I had three letters: one from orgo, one from physics and one from calc. None of the schools I applied to ever mentioned anything, so I would say yes it is accepted as a science letter of recommendation.

Anyone catch WVU's letter requirements?

They want letters from Chemistry, Physics, and Biology professors. No ifs and buts!!

I contacted my Physics teacher (after 3.5 yrs) and he told me he would love to write me a letter, but he now resides in China and mail is heavily regulated there. I guess WVU is off the list for me...

I wouldn't give up that easily!!! Why don't you sign up for interfolio, then your professor can upload a letter electronically?

Would be a shame to give up on a school because of the postal regulations in China dont you think?

China censors the internet too.
