Distance Calculus @ Roger Williams University is in full operation during COVID-19 Emergency

High School AP Calculus Online Course - Distance Calculus

High School students who have taken the AP Calculus sequence (Calculus AB and Calculus BC) are able to continue with their calculus study via Distance Calculus @ Roger Williams University.

Perhaps you have taken the AP Calculus exams ... perhaps you have decided not to take the AP Calculus exams ... in either case, completion of the AP Calculus courses at your high school satisfy the prerequisites for the next course in the sequence - Multivariable Calculus - sometimes called Vector Calculus or Calculus III or even Calculus IV.

Our Multivariable Calculus course is the course where you learn about partial derivatives, multiple integrals, Green's, Stokes', and Gauss's Theorem (The Fundamental Theorem of Multivariable Calculus).

The curriculum for Multivariable Calculus really comes alive in the LiveMath computer algebra and graphing softwhere, as the true way of exploring Multivariable Calculus is via computer graphics.

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 have difficulty learning calculus based math, akin to dyslexia when examining the symbolic forms, equations, definitions, and problems. Mathematica based calculus courses allowed me to continue with my studies because of the option of seeing the math expressed as a programming language for which I have no difficulty in interpreting visually and the immediate feedback of graphical representations of functions, equations, or data makes a huge impact on understanding. Mathematica based calculus courses should be the default method of teaching Calculus everywhere.

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.
