Baltimore, MD (PRWEB) October 29, 2012
StraighterLine (StraighterLine.com) announced today the addition of 71 College Calculus videos to their online mathematics video series, Simply StraighterLine Video Tutorials. The free online education feature is available to students of all ages on YouTube whenever anyone needs a little help answering math questions. Each short video features a simple explanation and step-by-step analysis of how to solve a specific college calculus problem.
Including the Calculus videos, there are now over 275 StraighterLine Video Tutorials online. Subjects include College Algebra, Precalculus, and Statistics. New videos are being added continually covering topics from the StraighterLine online math curriculum. StraighterLine students, students enrolled at our many partner colleges and universities, or even the general public can sign up for updates as new videos are added by subscribing to the StraighterLine YouTube channel.
“Calculus is one of the most challenging courses StraighterLine offers,” says Josef Katz, VP Marketing of StraighterLine. “So it makes sense that as soon as we could, we added Calculus videos to our Video Tutorial Series. Calculus is required for a wide variety of majors at most colleges and universities, especially majors in the popular STEM fields of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math. The material in these courses lends itself easily to a video format and matches the format of our overall self-paced courses. Students can start and stop or review the materials as often as they need until they master the subject matter. We hope these videos help make it easier for all students to understand complex and challenging material. We welcome non-StraighterLine students to learn from this resource and to become more familiar with our approach to distance learning courses.”
