Vector Calculus (Calculus 3) for Credit

Calculus 3 - Vector Calculus - is usually taken during the sophomore year of the college/university undergraduate Calculus course sequence. Vector Calculus has many names:
  • Multivariable Calculus
  • Vector Calculus
  • Calculus 3
  • Calculus III
Vector Calculus is an awesome course to jump off into the online course experience - the curriculum is highly visual, and the course content is less about "drill & practice" type mathematics, and more about concepts and relationships, generalizing the theorems of 1-dimensional calculus to multiple dimensions.

No matter which major or specialization you might be aiming for - computer science, engineering, physics, economics, business, data science - a strong background in multivariable calculus will put you ahead of the pack and give you the foundations necessary to excel in these other academic and practical disciplines.

Review: I did not enjoy Calculus I at my school. I retook Calculus I, and then Calculus II, over the summer via Distance Calculus and it was awesome. I started my sophomore year back on track and ready for my physics classes. I struggled with the MathLive software but I guess it was alright.

Review: I highly recommend this course! Dr. Curtis is the best teacher and is ALWAYS willing to work with you to make sure you understand the subject. It was definitely a positive experience and the credits were transferred to my University with no problems! I definitely do not regret it and I had doubts in the beginning but if I had to, I would do it all over again!

Review: My microeconomics class required college-level calculus as a prerequisite, and I didn't want to wait until next year to take the class. So, I took DC's Calculus I class over the summer, so I could register for econ when I got back to school this fall. I actually think I got more help taking the class online than I would have in the huge lecture classes here. Prof. Curtis was really clear in explaining concepts and talking me through the topics that I was having trouble with. It took me about 10 weeks to finish the class, which didn't seem too long and didn't feel rushed. My friends who are in calculus now, trying to finish the prereq, are pretty jealous!
