Differential Equations Course - Distance Calculus Course Information

Differential Equations course can best be described as a "first course in the study of differential equations of a single independent variable".

This course has many names, all being equivalent:
• Ordinary Differential Equations
• Introductory Differential Equations
• Differential Equations of a Single Variable
• DiffyQ !

Our Differential Equations course differs from a classroom/textbook-based course in that we employ Mastery Learning so that you complete all assignments at 100% to assure competancy, as well as our curriculum shifting the course to a laboratory-style course, where theorem/lemma/proof type exposition is replaced by running experiments in Mathematica as you would in a science laboratory to empirically deduce the concepts and behaviors of differential equations, both solvable (classically) via hand-based techiques, as well as studying differential equations that can only be solved and investigated graphically and numerically using a computer.

At Distance Calculus, we call our "Differential Equations" course as Differential Equations - DMAT 201 - 3 credits.

Review: Awesome classes! I was really weak with Calculus, so I retook Calc 1 and kept going into Calc 2. I feel like I finally understood Calculus. The finals were pretty thorough, but not nearly as stressful as the blue book exams. I highly recommend these courses!

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!
