# Calculus-Based Statistics - Probability Theory - Distance Calculus Course Information

Calculus-Based Statistics course can best be described as a "first course in the study of Statistics and Probablity Theory using Calculus".This course has many names, all being equivalent:

- Probablity Theory
- Calculus-Based Statistics
- Second Course in Statistics for STEM

Our Probability Theory course differs from a classroom/textbook-based course in that we employ Mastery Learning so that you complete all assignments at 100% to assure competancy, as well as our curriculum shifting the course to a laboratory-style course, where theorem/lemma/proof type exposition is replaced by running experiments in Mathematica as you would in a science laboratory to empirically deduce the concepts and behaviors of Probability Theory, both solvable (classically) via hand-based techiques, as well as studying Probability Theory that can only be solved and investigated graphically and numerically using a computer. The Probability Theory curriculum is highly visual and based upon observations of experiments run in Mathematica or LiveMath.

At Distance Calculus, we call our "Calculus-Based Statistics" course as Probability Theory - Math 315 - 3 credits.

## Distance Calculus - Student Reviews

Review by: Harlan E.

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!

Courses Completed: Linear Algebra

Review: The program used gives an amazing insight into everything that's happening, that you wouldn't get in a traditional course. All of the lessons are clear and clean, and the professor is very helpful along the way. I learned a lot and am happy with taking this course

Courses Completed: Probability Theory

Review: Probability Theory was a great course. Very very thorough. I thought it would never end :). I was very prepared for my coursework in economics. Excellent refereshher of derivatives and integrals - really forced me to remember that stuff from freshman cal.
