Online Calculus Course for Academic Credits

In searching for a real Calculus course for academic credit, you may find lots of different sites running around the internet offering "Calculus I" or "Calculus II".

Free sites like Coursera, Udemy, MITx, Khan Academy, and edX are wonderful programs, but they do not offer real academic credits. Some claim to offer "ACE Exam Credit" but that is an exam-based (partial) credit system that is not universally accepted by all colleges and universities - some might, most won't.

There are a handful of colleges and universities that do offer Calculus for credit online. But when you did deeper into these courses, you will discover:
  • Courses only start in the beginning of Fall, beginning of Spring, and beginning of Summer semesters.
  • Courses have a strict deadline structure
  • Courses utilize "Course System", via a textbook publisher, where the system is just a multiple-choice quizzing system.
In looking for a Calculus course for credit, we recommend you engage due dilligence, investigate the course offerings, and read the reviews of various programs. We are confident that Distance Calculus will be on your short list to consider which Calculus course you wish to enroll in online.

Review: I took the whole calculus series and Linear Algebra via Distance Calculus. Dr. Curtis spent countless hours messaging back and forth with me, answering every question, no matter how trivial they might seem. Dr. Curtis is extremely responsive, especially if the student is curious and is willing to work hard. I don't think I ever waited much more than a day for Dr. Curtis to get a notebook back to me. Dr. Curtis would also make videos of concepts if I was really lost. The course materials are fantastic. If you are a student sitting on the fence, trying to decide between a normal classroom class or Distance Calculus classes with Livemath and Mathematica, my choice would be the Distance Calculus classes every time. The Distance Calculus classes are more engaging. The visual aspects of the class notebooks are awesome. You get the hand calculation skills you need. The best summary I can give is to say, given the opportunity, I would put my own son's math education in Dr. Curtis's hands.

Review: I highly recommend this course. I started the Kennedy School at Harvard with a last-minute admission, but my application required the Liberal Arts calculus course, so I had to finish the course in 3 weeks. Diane was an awesome instructor! The class was surprisingly interesting. If you need to take calculus fast, this is the program to use.

Review: Course was good and fast. I don't like math so I can't say it was fun or anything. Grader was very nice. Software was ok.
