Except for very specifc niches (busines interruption which would require a lot of accounting skills for example), it's not math intensive. Obviously actuarial science would be all about math and statistics. But for a general adjuster/apraiser job, basic math up to algebra I should be about all you need. If anything, an accounting class would probably be more helpful than say, calculus.
