# Multivariable Calculus - After the AP Calculus AB and BC Courses

An excellent path towards academic achievement in university calculus is to take the Multivariable Calculus course after you have completed the high-school AP Calculus AB and BC courses.Some students pass the AP Calculus AB and/or BC exams at a 3, 4, or 5, earning college credit at their college or university they will attend after high school.

Keep the ball rolling! Many motivated high school students take the Distance Calculus Multivariable Calculus course after they complete the AP Calculus AB and BC course at their high school.

Distance Calculus does not require a specific score on the AP Calculus BC exam - completion of your high school AP Calculus BC course is sufficient to meet the prerequisite for the Distance Calculus Multivariable Calculus course. Although earning course credit for Calculus I (Calculus AB) and/or Calculus II (Calculus BC) is advantageous for an eager high school student, sometimes the high stakes AP Calculus exam is not for everyone. It is more important to keep your math studies going forward, and Distance Calculus Multivariable Calculus can be your platform to earn real, transferrable college credits, not just a score on a standardized exam.

Review: I highly recommend this course! Dr. Curtis is the best teacher and is ALWAYS willing to work with you to make sure you understand the subject. It was definitely a positive experience and the credits were transferred to my University with no problems! I definitely do not regret it and I had doubts in the beginning but if I had to, I would do it all over again!

Courses Completed: Precalculus, Calculus I

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.
