# 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.

Below are some videos about our Distance Calculus courses:

Courses Completed: Calculus I

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

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.
