Multivariable Calculus Online - Vector Calculus

Multivariable Calculus (or Calculus IV) is usually taken in the sophomore year of undergraduate college/university by students enrolled in a STEM major. This course is sometimes called Vector Calculus.

Taking Multivariable Calculus Online is an excellent option for many students, especially those that finished Calculus I and Calculus II their freshman year (or AP Calculus their senior year of high school), and wish to get ahead in their academic sequence by finishing Multivariable Calculus over the summer months.

Our Multivariable Calculus via Distance Calculus is a modern approach to the course, utilizing modern Computer Algebra and Graphing software to investigate the topics of Multivariable Calculus - Green's Theorem, Stokes' Theorem, Divergence Theorem (all really the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus in Multiple Variables - via a modern, graphical-based study, rather than just learning stale theorems in a paper textbook. The curriculum comes alive with using high-power graphical tools like LiveMath.

Courses Completed: Calculus I
Review: My microeconomics class required college-level calculus as a prerequisite, and I didn't want to wait until next year to take the class. So, I took DC's Calculus I class over the summer, so I could register for econ when I got back to school this fall. I actually think I got more help taking the class online than I would have in the huge lecture classes here. Prof. Curtis was really clear in explaining concepts and talking me through the topics that I was having trouble with. It took me about 10 weeks to finish the class, which didn't seem too long and didn't feel rushed. My friends who are in calculus now, trying to finish the prereq, are pretty jealous!

Courses Completed: Calculus I, Calculus II
Review: I needed to brush up on my high school calculus and finally take Calc II before starting a graduate program that needed them as prereqs. This was perfect choice to fit in that summer. Got done at fast pace that I wanted and needed. Also had added bonus of one on one feedback and help when needed. Video lessons were better than many on campus instructors in large lecture settings. Recommend for anyone needing to satisfy prereqs at home institution.

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.
