4,706Senior Member1,412Senior Member13New Memberthere are occasions, you need calc to pass actuary tests. but i dont know what the math they do is like besides being difficult.

223Junior Member67Junior MemberSeriously, what good is calculus for? It is the basis for higher level mathematics including analysis, differential equations, stochastics, statistics...etc.

If you want to pursue any quantitative career such as quant trading for example, you're going to need heavy math....

Most college students know calculus, so the calculus skill really isn't anything special.
