Multivariable Calculus, Differential Equations, and Linear Algebra for Advanced High School StudentsMany advanced high school students will finish Calculus AB (Calculus I) and Calculus BC (Calculus II) during their junior or senior year of high school, and look to take more mathematics courses during high school. Yet, in most high schools, Calculus II is the highest course offered.
Some very excellent students may finish Calculus I (AB) and Calculus II (BC) during their junior year of high school. For these accelerated students, enrolling in Differential Equations, Linear Algebra, and perhaps Multivariable Calculus, 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!
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: Linear Algebra, Calculus 3 (Calculus III) - Multivariable Calculus, and perhaps even Differential Equations and/or Calculus-Based Statistics (Probability Theory) - during your senior year or during the summer before you start your new undergraduate university. Earning real collegiate academic credits for Linear Algebra 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.

Review: I took the Business Calculus course from Distance Calculus in 2013. I was admitted to my MBA program, but then they told me I needed to take Calculus before starting the program. I finished the Business Calculus course in about 3 weeks in August before my program started. Not the most fun thing to do over the summer, but at least I got it done. Thanks Diane and Distance Calculus team!

Courses Completed: Calculus I, Calculus II
Review: I found the courses to be informative, enjoyable, and most importantly, effective in helping me learn the concepts of calculus. My math skills were always very weak, and I had a great deal of difficulty passing my undergrad math courses. The pace of a traditional classroom setting was just too quick for the concepts to really sink in. With Distance Calculus, I had courses that were taught with the full rigor of an on-campus class, but where I could take my time and really learn the material...all while having access to top-tier instructional help for real math professors and assistants. DC gave me the tools and the confidence I needed, so after successfully passing my DC courses, I moved on and completed a master's degree in CS.

Courses Completed: Precalculus, Calculus I
Review: Pros: once you get going, you can go really fast. The visual textbook is pretty cool. The instructors were very responsive. Cons: the movies are great, but the software crashes more than it should. Sometimes it is just a hassle doing things in the software instead of on paper, but once I got used to the software, it was ok.
