This year-long course covers a typical college-level Calculus III curriculum, including vectors and vector-valued functions, curves and surfaces in space, partial derivatives and gradients, multiple integration, and line and surface integrals. In the course’s final unit, students learn how to identify and solve various kinds of differential equations, including exact first-order equations, second-order homogeneous and nonhomogeneous linear equations, and partial differential equations, and they practice using such equations to model systems from science and engineering. Built on a foundation of sophisticated problem solving, the course also features 3D visualization and model-building activities that help students develop their geometric intuitions about doing calculus in higher dimensions.
WHAT STUDENTS SAY
"I’m learning a lot of new topics that I never thought about. Some of the topics are logical thinking, which is going to help me generally in life because not everything is a math problem where you have to solve for x."
WHAT STUDENTS DO
Learning is an active process at One Schoolhouse. Students design, create and apply. And, they engage with classmates and connect with their teachers through discussions, video conferences, and projects. Specifically, in this class students will:
