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:

Courses Completed: Probability Theory
Review: Probability Theory was a great course. Very very thorough. I thought it would never end :). I was very prepared for my coursework in economics. Excellent refereshher of derivatives and integrals - really forced me to remember that stuff from freshman cal.

Courses Completed: Calculus I, Calculus II, Multivariable Calculus, Linear Algebra
Review: I took the whole calculus series and Linear Algebra via Distance Calculus. Dr. Curtis spent countless hours messaging back and forth with me, answering every question, no matter how trivial they might seem. Dr. Curtis is extremely responsive, especially if the student is curious and is willing to work hard. I don't think I ever waited much more than a day for Dr. Curtis to get a notebook back to me. Dr. Curtis would also make videos of concepts if I was really lost. The course materials are fantastic. If you are a student sitting on the fence, trying to decide between a normal classroom class or Distance Calculus classes with Livemath and Mathematica, my choice would be the Distance Calculus classes every time. The Distance Calculus classes are more engaging. The visual aspects of the class notebooks are awesome. You get the hand calculation skills you need. The best summary I can give is to say, given the opportunity, I would put my own son's math education in Dr. Curtis's hands.

Courses Completed: Calculus II, Multivariable Calculus
Review: Fantastic courses! I barely made it through Cal 1, and halfway through Cal 2 I found this program. I took Cal 2 and then Multivariable and I just loved it! SOOOOOOO much better than a classroom+textbook class. I highly recommend!
