It is common, but I only experienced it in handwriting in k-6, (maybe k-8).
In high school and at uni everyone used · or just juxtaposition.

That is, when teaching arithmetic × was typical, but when teaching elementary
algebra or higher math · was used.

Digitalization and the prevalence of * in programming languages may, however,
have had an impact on that tendency in the last mumble-mumble decades. ☺
