Differential Equations Fast Academic Credits!

Differential Equations is a second-year calculus-sequence course that is the gateway to physics, engineering, economics, data science, and other popular STEM disciplines.

Our Differential Equations course is not a text-booky course, with endless paper-and-pencil manual approaches to the subject of differential equations, which most textbooks just do the standard "here is how you solve by hand this type of differential equation".

Our Differential Equations course is more like a laboratory course, where you use Mathematica as a tool to investigate the subject of differential equations, much the way a physicist or engineer would study the subject - via experimentation using a powerful laboratory tool to look at differential equations qualitatively, quantitatively, graphically, empiracally.

Below are some videos on the Differential Equations course you may find interesting.

Courses Completed: Applied Calculus
Review: I found out from my MBA program that I needed to finish calculus before starting the MBA. They told me 3 weeks before term started! I was able to finish Applied Calculus from Distance Calculus. Definitely a great class. Thanks Distance Calculus!

Review: This course is amazing! I took it as a requirement for admission to an MBA program, and couldn't have been happier with the quality and rigor of the course. I previously took calculus two times (at a public high school and then a large public university commonly cited as a "public ivy"), this course was by far the best and *finally* made the concepts click. Previously I had no idea what was going on because terrible PhD students were teaching the course and saying stuff like "a derivative is the slope of a tangent line" - ??? but what does that mean ???, but the instructors in the Shorter University course explain everything in ways where it FINALLY made sense (e.g., "imagine a roller coaster hitting the top of a hill, there's a moment where it shifts momentum and you're not accelerating or decelerating, that's what a 0 rate of change is - that's when the derivative would be zero"). They explain everything in multiple ways and relate it to other concepts. It all made perfect sense when I finally had a good instructor. Really recommend this class

Review: I loved these courses. So in depth and comprehensive. The mix of software and math curriculum was tremendously helpful to my future studies and career in engineering. I highly recommend these courses if you are bored of textbook courses.
