I can attest that test course are HEAVILY mathematical! I signed up for the Algorithms: Design and Analysis classes and after the first lecture realized that it was more a class in what I would call advanced calculus that just happened to be doing proofs for computer algorithms and since I had not done a proof in 25 years it was a little much.

But the class was still very interesting, so if you are actively using calculus and doing proofs, I'd recommend giving them a shot.
