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.

Review by: Douglas Z.
Courses Completed: Multivariable Calculus, Differential Equations, Linear Algebra, Probability Theory
Review: I loved these courses. So in depth and comprehensive. The mix of software and math curriculum was tremendously helpful to my future studies and career in engineering. I highly recommend these courses if you are bored of textbook courses.

Courses Completed: Calculus I, Calculus II
Review: I did not enjoy Calculus I at my school. I retook Calculus I, and then Calculus II, over the summer via Distance Calculus and it was awesome. I started my sophomore year back on track and ready for my physics classes. I struggled with the MathLive software but I guess it was alright.

Review by: Brian Finley
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.
