Online Options for Multivariable Calculus - Distance Calculus

Multivariable Calculus is the first course in the sophomore year of the calculus sequence.

For many students, Calculus I and II are courses to "slug through" where you learn multiple techniques for differentiation and integration, and apply these techniques to solving problems involving area, volume, and rates of change problems, among other applications.

Multivariable Calculus is where the Calculus starts to get fun! The entire point of the Multivariable Calculus course is to generalize the topics of 1-variable calculus (from Calculus I and II) to multiple variables. That brings our "flat calculus" into 3D and higher dimensions, where the graphics and beauty of calculus really take flight.

Many students report that Multivariable Calculus is the first course where they start to like calculus. Our curriculum for our Multivariable Calculus course - VectorCalculus&LiveMath - is a wonderful curriculum with a wonderful mixture of 3D graphics, generalized concepts, and exposition that make the course captivating, engaging, and rigorously enjoyable.

Review: I highly recommend this course! Dr. Curtis is the best teacher and is ALWAYS willing to work with you to make sure you understand the subject. It was definitely a positive experience and the credits were transferred to my University with no problems! I definitely do not regret it and I had doubts in the beginning but if I had to, I would do it all over again!

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.
