Hey everyone, I've asked something similar, but the time to sign up for summer classes is nearing.

Reason I want to take Calc III this summer- so I can take Modern Physics in the fall.

I will be working 40 hours a week at a summer camp, so I'm not sure how that will pan out with an online class. I love Calc II right now and find it really easy. The way that our setup works is we have online lectures and homework with a forum for questions. I've heard the professor gives his cell phone # too. We take the tests and exam at a local community college.


Is this setting myself up to fail? The other alternative is going to a university at the beach and living there to take it. I'd probably take Orgo if I did that.



My main question is how hard would Online Calc III be? How much did you benefit from looking at a professor teach it? I would like to get an A. If someone took it online or another comparable class and is willing to share, that would be greatly appreciated.

I find online classes easier because I don't have to listen to the instructor speak and it forces them to follow a textbook. So if you are competent at self study it will not present a problem.

(I really wish all math classes were offered online/independent study, instructors who feel their notes are better then textbooks are delusional.)

The only question is if you can handle summer camp + course.

Why exactly?

My instructor has his own note set separate from the textbook because the school requires all calc I-III classes to use Stewart's book. He apparently hates Stewart's.

Regardless, I suppose I can give it a try. I'll be working 8-4 every day, so I should have at least two hours a day to dedicate to the class.
