AP Linear Matrix Algebra for Advanced High School StudentsIf the AP Calculus sequence continued in high school, one of the courses after AP Calculus BC (Calculus II) would be: AP Linear Algebra.
Linear Algebra is a course taken in the sophomore year in college/university, and taken after Calculus II (AP Calculus BC).
The Linear Algebra course is almost never offered in high schools due to its advanced nature, and also because there is a no "AP Linear Algebra" exam.
College credit for calculus courses does not depend upon the AP Calculus exams - even while you are in high school, you may jump in collegiate math courses, either at a local college, or via an online program like Distance Calculus.
It is important to earn real, transferrable academic credit, like those credits you may earn from Distance Calculus @ Roger Williams University. There are many Linear Algebra courses running around the internet, and some of them are really really excellent! But if they don't offer real, transferrable college credit, well .... you need to prove to others you have completed Linear Algebra!

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: 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.

Review: I took the Business Calculus course from Distance Calculus in 2013. I was admitted to my MBA program, but then they told me I needed to take Calculus before starting the program. I finished the Business Calculus course in about 3 weeks in August before my program started. Not the most fun thing to do over the summer, but at least I got it done. Thanks Diane and Distance Calculus team!
