Yes, that was exactly my experience, same year and given the same problem Smile | :) (different college, and possibly a different country).
At the same time we were introduced to the programmable calculator an Olivetti P101 with 240 bytes of RAM and told this was the future so learn to use it. I never did any other exercise on it than solving a quadratic, it kept on breaking down.
After graduating we used HP65's and finally in 1975 my bosses wanted data gathered and pre-processed at the point of data collection (underwater for offshore applications) so it was "Hello" to processors like the Intel 8008 and later the Z80. The electronics module of my physics degree came into play and I had to learn to program in assembler, fortunately I was able to get away with integer arithmetic.
In my experience maths is an integral part of life, saying you don't need maths IMO is like saying you don't need to be able to write - you can get by but what a hindrance.
