It probably is. I don't remember it being taught that way, though - I remember the term "compounding," but there was no real-world stuff in any of it.I have a few math degrees myself. Just from my recollections:From the times I TA'd and, later, taught calculus, there were always examples of compounding interest problems. Later in advanced calc there was the derivation of e shown as an example of taking the limit of compounding period down to zero. Then there are all of the financial examples in prob/stat if you go that route.That being said, I agree with Peter Lynch when he said (paraphrasing) that all the math you'll ever need for financial matters you should have learned by junior high.--B+C
