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: This was the best class! So much more interesting doing the computer math than a boring lecture class. Diane was so responsive and helpful. I recommend this course.

Review: Course was good and fast. I don't like math so I can't say it was fun or anything. Grader was very nice. Software was ok.

Courses Completed: Calculus II
Review: I took Calculus II through Distance Calculus and can't recommend it enough. Being able to take the course at my own pace while I was working full time was tremendously helpful, especially since I hadn't taken a math course for 5 years prior. The instruction was excellent and the software they used to teach the course was intuitive and facilitated the learning process very well. This calc II class enabled me to take multivariable calc, linear algebra, and real analysis at Harvard University's extension school, which ultimately qualified me for the economics PhD program that I will graduate from next year. 8 years on, I'm still grateful to Professor Curtis and Distance Calculus.
