Calculus-Based Statistics for Advanced High School StudentsMany very motivated and eager high school students will finish Calculus AB (Calculus I) and Calculus BC (Calculus II) during their junior or senior year of high school.
If you finish these AP Calculus courses during your senior year, then one option to get ahead with your academic plan is to complete the next few courses: Calculus 3 (Calculus III) - Multivariable Calculus, Differential Equations, and/or Calculus-Based Statistics (Probability Theory) - during the summer before you start your new undergraduate university. Earning real collegiate academic credits for Calculus-Based Statistics and then transferring those credits to your new undergraduate college/university is an excellent way to start your new school with some advanced mathematics credits under your belt.
Some very eager students may finish Calculus I (AB) and Calculus II (BC) during their junior year of high school. For these students, enrolling in Calculus-Based Statistics, and perhaps Multivariable Calculus and Linear Algebra, via Distance Calculus @ Roger Williams University is an excellent way to FINISH your lower division mathematics courses even before you step foot onto your new college/university campus the following Fall semester!

Review: I did not do well in AP Calculus during my senior year in high school. Instead of trying to cram for the AP exam, I decided to jump ship and go to Distance Calculus to complete Calculus I. This was awesome! I finished Calculus I in about 6 weeks, and then I kept going into Calculus II. I started as a freshman at UCLA with both Calculus I and II done!

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.
