I would like to highlight this 1-star review of Calculus for Everyone on Amazon.
Kat is not wrong. Here is a quote from Mitch Stokes:
“Without the notion that the world has been mathematically designed by God, modern science wouldn’t have gotten off the ground.”
– Calculus for Everyone
All curriculum at Roman Roads Press is unapologetically Christian. It is not something added on to our courses, but presupposed and foundational. The very first point of our Statement of Faith puts it this way:
- That the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ is the center point of all history.
Harvard University stated it so well in 1646, that I will repeat this favorite quote from their “Rules and Precepts”:
Harvard has abandoned this as the goal of education, and our mission at Roman Roads Press is to recover that discarded heritage.
Calculus for Everyone
Calculus for Everyone teaches Calculus. But it also represents one of the first tangible steps in recent years towards reunifying STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) with the liberal arts. The goal is to produce a generation of classically educated students who understand the history of math, and will be better equipped to solve problems like our current crisis in Physics.
Is it really for Everyone?
Yes! We believe every high school student would greatly benefit from Calculus,taught classically. The only prerequisite is Algebra 1.
Most Calculus textbooks teach too many concepts, too fast, and in the wrong order. Calculus for Everyone is different. It is accessible and beneficial to the student how might otherwise not take Calculus in high school, and the ideal foundation for the science and engineering student who will go on to take more advanced Calculus and mathematics.
The most common response from math majors and advanced students is this:“I wish I had a course like Calculus for Everyone before I took advanced mathematics!”
Sandra Schinetsky from Regents School of Austin explains why Calculus for Everyone is truly for everyone.
After we posted that one-star review from Amazon on social media, many of our customers wrote in to tell us what they thought of the course. THANK YOU to each and every one of you who wrote a review or left a comment!
