Differential Equations - Fast Academic Credits!Differential Equations online course via Distance Calculus is a sophomore-level course in the calculus sequence, taken after the Calculus II course (integration theory with Taylor Series, Sequences, et al.)
The modern Differential Equations approach is to forget all of that paper and pencil classical technique - via the Calculus&Mathematica curriculum - is to look at differential equations as what they mean - not how to solve the (rather trivial) cases you can do by hand. Mathematica is a very powerful tool to obtain the solution of any differential equation (if there is one!), and so ... what does the solution mean? How do you interpret the solution? What does the solution's graph mean? What if there are slight changes to the differential equation? What is a driver? An Oscillator?
The Classical Differential Equations approach is concerned with a type of differential equation, and the paper and pencil techniques to solve the given type of differential equation.
This modern approach to Differential Equations is a superior approach for data science, physics, economics, and all branches of science that use mathematics (i.e. all of science!).

Courses Completed: Calculus II
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: Multivariable Calculus, Differential Equations, Linear Algebra
Review: After a really rough first year of calculus, I completed all of the second year calculus courses with Distance Calculus. It was like night and day the difference. My first year was so boring and monotonous. Multivariable Calculus, Differential Equations, and Linear Algebra through Distance Calculus were just so much different - so not boring at all. I thoroughly enjoyed these courses. So engaging.

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.
