Linear Matrix Algebra + Multivariable Calculus for Advanced High School StudentsMany very motivated and eager high school students will finish Calculus AB (Calculus I) and Calculus BC (Calculus II) during their junior or senior year of high school, and look to take more mathematics courses during high school. Yet, in most high schools, Calculus II is the highest course offered.
If you finish these AP Calculus courses during your senior year, then one option to get ahead with your academic plan is to complete the next few courses: Linear Algebra, Calculus 3 (Calculus III) - Multivariable Calculus, and perhaps even Differential Equations and/or Calculus-Based Statistics (Probability Theory) - during your senior year or during the summer before you start your new undergraduate university. Earning real collegiate academic credits for Linear Algebra and then transferring those credits to your new undergraduate college/university is an excellent way to start your new school with some advanced mathematics credits under your belt.
Some very eager students may finish Calculus I (AB) and Calculus II (BC) during their junior year of high school. For these students, enrolling in Math 315 - Linear Algebra, and perhaps Math 351 - Multivariable Calculus and Math 317 - Differential Equations, via Distance Calculus @ Roger Williams University is an excellent way to FINISH your lower division mathematics courses even before you step foot onto your new college/university campus the following Fall semester!

Review: This course was more affordable than many, and the flexible format was terrific for me, as I am inclined to work very diligently on tasks on my own. It could be dangerous for a person who requires external discipline more, but it works well for self-starters, allowing you to prioritize when you have other pressing work. I was a full time teacher adding a math certification, and this course allowed me to master the math while working around my teaching schedule and fitting work into moments here and there when I had time. I was able to transfer the credits to Montana State University, Bozeman for my teaching internship program without a hitch. The instructors were all very helpful and patient, even when I failed to see a ridiculously simple solution on one problem after 20 emails back and forth. Overall, I was more pleased with my experience in this class than I was with any of my other 9 courses.

Review: This course is amazing! I took it as a requirement for admission to an MBA program, and couldn't have been happier with the quality and rigor of the course. I previously took calculus two times (at a public high school and then a large public university commonly cited as a "public ivy"), this course was by far the best and *finally* made the concepts click. Previously I had no idea what was going on because terrible PhD students were teaching the course and saying stuff like "a derivative is the slope of a tangent line" - ??? but what does that mean ???, but the instructors in the Shorter University course explain everything in ways where it FINALLY made sense (e.g., "imagine a roller coaster hitting the top of a hill, there's a moment where it shifts momentum and you're not accelerating or decelerating, that's what a 0 rate of change is - that's when the derivative would be zero"). They explain everything in multiple ways and relate it to other concepts. It all made perfect sense when I finally had a good instructor. Really recommend this class

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.
