# New Course Information - Distance Calculus @ Roger Williams University Enroll Now, Start Today, Finish Quick - Calculus Academic Credits

If you are shopping around for an Applied Calculus = Survey of Calculus course that you can start immediately, and finish quickly (as quickly as your academic skills allow), then Distance Calculus @ Roger Williams University may be the right program for you.Our Survey of Calculus = Applied Calculus course is not a "canned" multiple choice course like those offered at many other schools and MOOCs (which usually do not offer the academic credits on academic transcript that you need). Applied Calculus has a wonderful curriculum, providing an excellent introductory study of Differential and Integral Calculus without the rigor (and trigonometry) found in the engineering-level Calculus I course.

Courses Completed: Calculus II

Review: This is the most interactive and productive online course I have ever taken. I had taken calculus before but never understood some of the underlying concepts until I took this course. If you want to really learn calculus in a way that will stay with you for the rest of your life, take this course.

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.

Courses Completed: Calculus I, Calculus II

Review: I did not do well in AP Calculus during my senior year in high school. Instead of trying to cram for the AP exam, I decided to jump ship and go to Distance Calculus to complete Calculus I. This was awesome! I finished Calculus I in about 6 weeks, and then I kept going into Calculus II. I started as a freshman at UCLA with both Calculus I and II done!
