I doubt it has anything to do with "the math professor". Any maths
professor will tell you that, in mathematics, = is used for both
assignment and equality, since in maths they are the same thing.
And besides, equality testing is no less common than assignment. To
appease the "self-righteous indignation of the C coders", we have to type
== instead of = for a very common operator. No matter what convention you
use, you're going to upset some group of people.
Seriously, I programmed in Pascal for many years, and typing := for
assignment is not a burden.
