MBA Business Calculus Fast - Applied CalculusMany students going into an MBA program need to complete a "single-semester Calculus course for non-majors" to satisfy their calculus entrance requirement.
In addition to a calculus requirement, MBA schools also usually require additional financial mathematics courses as a preparatory course before entrace into their program.
Our Business Calculus course is called Applied Calculus - Math 207 - 3 credits - from Roger Williams University in Providence, Rhode Island.
Our Applied Calculus course is a general, liberal arts introduction to Calculus. It is not specifically a "business applications of calculus" course. While some courses and textbooks do exist like this, we believe that we, as mathematicians, should let the business concepts be taught by the business school, and while you are in the calculus course, we simply concentrate on the calculus topics. Otherwise, the course gets too long with lots of applications that "muddy the waters" for the student looking to finish the calculus requirement quickly.

Distance Calculus - Student Reviews

Review: Calculus I from Distance Calculus was wonderful! I took AB Calculus in high school, but I didn't take the AP Calc exam. Instead I took Calculus I with Distance Calculus, and it was so much better! It was a little review of topics, but not really. I really understood calculus when I finished!

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: Calculus I
Review: This course provided an excellent chance to learn about Calculus...again. I took calculus in high school, but I learned so much more with this course! It does take a good amount of time to do all the lessons, so definitely keep on top of them, but all the exercises helped me to really understand the material. And the nice thing is you can do it on your own time at home.
