# STEM/Engineering Calculus STEM Course Online

STEM - Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics - Calculus is usually known as "Engineering Calculus", and is the higher calculus course in the freshman Calculus sequence.Calculus I is designed for STEM majors, which may include:

- Mathematics
- Computer Science
- Science Majors: Biology, Chemistry, Physics
- Engineering Majors
- Economics

If you are planning to major in one of the sciences, you will need to likely take all of the following courses: We invite you to explore our Distance Calculus courses in more detail via the links above, or perhaps the movies below.

Courses Completed: Calculus I

Review: I really enjoyed this course, much more than I thought I would. I needed to finish this course very fast before starting my graduate degree program @ Kellogg. I was able to finish in 3 weeks. I liked the video lectures and the homework process. I highly recommend this course.

Courses Completed: Calculus I

Review: My microeconomics class required college-level calculus as a prerequisite, and I didn't want to wait until next year to take the class. So, I took DC's Calculus I class over the summer, so I could register for econ when I got back to school this fall. I actually think I got more help taking the class online than I would have in the huge lecture classes here. Prof. Curtis was really clear in explaining concepts and talking me through the topics that I was having trouble with. It took me about 10 weeks to finish the class, which didn't seem too long and didn't feel rushed. My friends who are in calculus now, trying to finish the prereq, are pretty jealous!

Review: Great course. Because of this class I was able to meet the entry requirements for my EMBA program on a tight time window in addition to sharpening math skills from classes taken over 15 years ago!
