Computing Your Course Cost

As you can see from the tables above, there are a few choices for you to make when deciding upon a course. Specifically, the type of time-based software license to obtain for either LiveMath™ or Mathematica™. If you are planning to take more than one course from Distance Calculus, or you just don't want your software to expire, then we recommend the "Time-Unlimited" versions of the software. If you are sure you will only take one course from Distance Calculus, then you may opt for the less expensive time-limited software license.

Below are some sample course cost computations.
