# Online Options for Calculus - Distance Calculus

For many students, Calculus I and II are courses to "slug through" where you learn multiple techniques for differentiation and integration, and apply these techniques to solving problems involving area, volume, and rates of change problems, among other applications.#### Freshman Math Courses

Multivariable Calculus is where the Calculus starts to get fun! The entire point of the Multivariable Calculus course is to

*generalize*the topics of 1-variable calculus (from Calculus I and II) to multiple variables. That brings our "flat calculus" into 3D and higher dimensions, where the graphics and beauty of calculus really take flight.

Many students report that Multivariable Calculus is the first course where they start to like calculus. Our curriculum for our Multivariable Calculus course - VectorCalculus&LiveMath - is a wonderful curriculum with a wonderful mixture of 3D graphics, generalized concepts, and exposition that make the course captivating, engaging, and rigorously enjoyable.

Review by: Teddy M.

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: Great course. Because of this class I was able to meet the entry requirements for my EMBA program on a tight time window in addition to sharpening math skills from classes taken over 15 years ago!

Review: Nothing but praise for Dr. Curtis. He's an excellent professor who is very responsive and knowledgeable. I did this course at night while working full-time, and I often skyped him late in the evening with questions. He never took long to respond, regardless of when it was. I finished this course in about a month and a half, and I worked for it. For those looking for an easy A, this is not it. You will have to put in serious work, but you will come out of the course with a good understanding of the material, especially if you apply yourself throughout the entirety of the course.
