Calculus 2 Online - Second Semester Calculus

Calculus 2 (or usually written Calculus II) is the second semester course in the freshman calculus sequence.

Taking Calculus 2 Online is an option for many students - Calculus II is a very long course, and in a classroom-type course, the pace can really too fast for many students. Additionally, the second part of the course - sequences and series - is really a very classical topic when engaged via a paper textbook.

Our Calculus 2 via Distance Calculus is a modern approach to the course, utilizing modern Computer Algebra and Graphing software to investigate the topics of Calculus 2 via a modern study, rather than just learning a bucket of "by hand" integration techniques, and trying to do sequences and series with just paper and pencil.

Below are some videos on our Calculus 2 Course:

Review by: Teddy M.
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.

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: Multivariable Calculus
Review: This course was more affordable than many, and the flexible format was terrific for me, as I am inclined to work very diligently on tasks on my own. It could be dangerous for a person who requires external discipline more, but it works well for self-starters, allowing you to prioritize when you have other pressing work. I was a full time teacher adding a math certification, and this course allowed me to master the math while working around my teaching schedule and fitting work into moments here and there when I had time. I was able to transfer the credits to Montana State University, Bozeman for my teaching internship program without a hitch. The instructors were all very helpful and patient, even when I failed to see a ridiculously simple solution on one problem after 20 emails back and forth. Overall, I was more pleased with my experience in this class than I was with any of my other 9 courses.
