## How long does it take to learn calculus on Khan Academy?

It took me 17 days to finish and master the differential calculus section, at an average of ~3.9 hrs/day. Note that I had no initial knowledge of what calculus even was before I started. Also, completing the course in this timeframe will take a lot of dedication and appreciation of the subject.

## Can you learn precalculus in a month?

Absolutely. If Handel can write the Messiah in a month, you certainly can achieve something significantly less ambitious. FWIW, I completely skipped precalculus and did fine in later topics. Learning math need not be a one-dimensional graph.

## Can I take precalculus online?

The precalculus online course by edx is a self-paced 7-week online pre calc class, which comprises 7 modules. After you are done with all the 7 modules of the online pre calc course, you’ll have to appear for a final exam. This is an assessment and review of all that you learned in the online precalculus class.

## What does pre-calculus consist of?

In mathematics education, precalculus or college algebra is a course, or a set of courses, that includes algebra and trigonometry at a level which is designed to prepare students for the study of calculus.

## Should I take pre calc over the summer?

It is very easy to get bogged down in the algebra and trig while trying to solve your calculus problems. So much so that it can make learning calculus difficult. Wether or not you school will allow you to test out of it, it’s well worth studying it on your own over the summer.

## Is pre calc over the summer hard?

Learning precalculus in a summer is very difficult. Precalculus is hard with 9 months to learn it. It is extremely difficult to learn in 6 weeks. If you are lost at any point, it will compound very quickly.

## Is Trig easier than pre calc?

Precalculus encompasses both trig and math analysis; therefore a precalculus course will cover more topics than just a trigonometry course alone. Why is precalculus hard? Now, most students agree that math analysis is “easier” than trigonometry, simply because it’s familiar (i.e., it’s very similar to algebra).

## How Good Is Khan Academy calculus?

Khan Academy is excellent for introductory calculus, the slope of a curve or the area under it. But there are only so many interactive exercises that can be done at this level before you have mastered those.

## What is taught calculus 4?

The description of Calc 4 from their catalog is “Differential calculus of vector-valued functions, transformation of coordinates, change of variables in multiple integrals. Vector integral calculus: line integrals, Green’s theorem, surface integrals, Stokes’s theorem.
