I think that's a bit strange. Which version of Ubuntu did you try? On my 
14.04 machines I can see this:

~/ > whereis math.h
math: /usr/include/math.h
~/ > apt-file search /usr/include/math.h
libc6-dev: /usr/include/math.h

So libc6-dev should be the relevant package. Perhaps you need to run

hash -r

before it works.
