The Best Online Calculus CoursesSome of the best online calculus courses available on the internet include the courses offered via MITOpenCourseware, edX, and other MOOCs. Unfortunately, these MOOC courses are kind of like library books - while they explain the material in an excellent manner, you cannot tell another school or employer or graduate school that you read a good Calculus book at the library, and that should count for your calculus credits that you need for your degree program.
At Distance Calculus we believe that the more resources available online to help students learn, the better!
Distance Calculus @ Roger Williams University offers a number of options that may be beneficial to you in searching for an online calculus program to earn your calculus credits:
- Flexible enrollment - enroll today, start today. Few online programs offer this flexibility.
- Finish as quickly as your skills allow - many online programs make you follow a traditional academic calendar
- Asynchronous - no fixed meeting times - many online programs want you to participate in "group discussions" at certain times of the week.
- Computer Algebra curriculum instead of "multiple choice publisher course systems"
Here is a short video explaining some of the highlights of the Distance Calculus program:

Review by: Chester F.
Courses Completed: Calculus I, Calculus II
Review: I did not enjoy Calculus I at my school. I retook Calculus I, and then Calculus II, over the summer via Distance Calculus and it was awesome. I started my sophomore year back on track and ready for my physics classes. I struggled with the MathLive software but I guess it was alright.

Courses Completed: Calculus I
Review: Calculus I from Distance Calculus was wonderful! I took AB Calculus in high school, but I didn't take the AP Calc exam. Instead I took Calculus I with Distance Calculus, and it was so much better! It was a little review of topics, but not really. I really understood calculus when I finished!

Review by: Paul Simmons
Courses Completed: Multivariable Calculus, Differential Equations
Review: I took Multivariable and Diff Eq during the summer. The DiffEq course was awesome - very useful for my physics and engineering course. I was unsure about Mathematica at first, but I got the hang of it quickly. Thank you Distance Calculus!
