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.
Example Cost for Precalculus Course
If, for example, you were to enroll in the Distance Precalculus course, the total costs would be:
4-credit hour Course Tuition Roger Williams University |
$1732 |
Semester Enrollment Fee Roger Williams University |
