Letters of Recommendation - Graduate School Applications

Many Distance Calculus students request Letters of Recommendation to be written for them to accompany their graduate school applications.

One marvelous aspect of Distance Calculus is the intensive student-instructor communication, with multiple academic achievement measurements - homework, quizzes, exams, final video portfolio, all combining to allow the head instructor, Dr. Robert Curtis, to be able to write meaningful Letters of Recommendation for students who successfully complete a Distance Calculus course.

If you take a Calculus course in a traditional format in a large lecture hall, with hundreds or even thousands of students, it is unlikely that you will have the opportunity to connect with your course professor in a meaningful and intensive way, unless you happen to go to office hours each week!

If you try to take Calculus from one of the automated MOOC or even the large publisher "course systems", it is unlikely you will be able to earn a meaningful Letter of Recommendation from the instructor from such a course.

Review by: Jorgen M.
Courses Completed: Calculus I
Review: I really enjoyed this course, much more than I thought I would. I needed to finish this course very fast before starting my graduate degree program @ Kellogg. I was able to finish in 3 weeks. I liked the video lectures and the homework process. I highly recommend this course.

Review: Fantastic courses! I barely made it through Cal 1, and halfway through Cal 2 I found this program. I took Cal 2 and then Multivariable and I just loved it! SOOOOOOO much better than a classroom+textbook class. I highly recommend!
