# Multivariable Calculus (Calculus 3) for Credit

Calculus 3 - Multivariable Calculus - is usually taken during the sophomore year of the college/university undergraduate Calculus course sequence. Multivariable Calculus has many names:- Multivariable Calculus

- Vector Calculus
- Calculus 3
- Calculus III

No matter which major or specialization you might be aiming for - computer science, engineering, physics, economics, business, data science - a strong background in multivariable calculus will put you ahead of the pack and give you the foundations necessary to excel in these other academic and practical disciplines.

Review by: Benjamin T.

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.

Courses Completed: Calculus I

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 by: Teddy M.

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.
