STEM/Engineering Calculus Enroll Now, Start Today, Finish Quick - Calculus Academic CreditsIf you are shopping around for an Applied Calculus = Survey of Calculus course that you can start immediately, and finish quickly (as quickly as your academic skills allow), then Distance Calculus @ Roger Williams University may be the right program for you.
Our Survey of Calculus = Applied Calculus course is not a "canned" multiple choice course like those offered at many other schools and MOOCs (which usually do not offer the academic credits on academic transcript that you need). Applied Calculus has a wonderful curriculum, providing an excellent introductory study of Differential and Integral Calculus without the rigor (and trigonometry) found in the engineering-level Calculus I course.

Review: This course provided an excellent chance to learn about Calculus...again. I took calculus in high school, but I learned so much more with this course! It does take a good amount of time to do all the lessons, so definitely keep on top of them, but all the exercises helped me to really understand the material. And the nice thing is you can do it on your own time at home.

Review: This is the most interactive and productive online course I have ever taken. I had taken calculus before but never understood some of the underlying concepts until I took this course. If you want to really learn calculus in a way that will stay with you for the rest of your life, take this course.

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.
