Linear Algebra and 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 Linear Algebra, and perhaps Multivariable Calculus and 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!

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.

Courses Completed: Multivariable Calculus
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.

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.
