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.

Review: This is the most interactive and productive online course I have ever taken. I had taken calculus before but never understood some of the underlying concepts until I took this course. If you want to really learn calculus in a way that will stay with you for the rest of your life, take this course.

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: 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.
