# 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.Multivariable Calculus is the first course in the sophomore year of the calculus sequence.

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.

Here are some videos about our Multivariable Calculus course via Distance Calculus @ Roger Williams University:

Review by: Carl Conners

Courses Completed: Multivariable Calculus, Differential Equations, Linear Algebra

Review: After a really rough first year of calculus, I completed all of the second year calculus courses with Distance Calculus. It was like night and day the difference. My first year was so boring and monotonous. Multivariable Calculus, Differential Equations, and Linear Algebra through Distance Calculus were just so much different - so not boring at all. I thoroughly enjoyed these courses. So engaging.

Courses Completed: Applied Calculus

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.
