Multivariable Calculus is an online and individually-paced course that covers all topics in JHU's undergraduate Calculus III: Calculus of Several Variables course. In this course, students will extend what was learned in AB & BC Calculus and learn about the subtleties, applications, and beauty of limits, continuity, differentiation, and integration in higher dimensions. Computer-based interactives, homework and quizzes help to reinforce concepts taught in the class. Online course materials supplement the required textbook.
Each student is assigned to a CTY instructor to help them during their course. Students can contact their instructor via email with any questions or concerns at any time. Live one-on-one online review sessions can be scheduled as well to prepare for the graded assessments, which include quizzes, homework, midterm exams, and a cumulative final. Instructors use virtual classroom software allowing video, voice, text, screen sharing and whiteboard interaction.
