Georgia Tech Distance Learning | | Introduction Program Overview Student/School Interaction with Georgia Tech
Georgia Tech Distance Learning | | Comments from Previous Students …Northview High School's Calculus students are making a shirt specifically for this class... I hope this goes to show you how much FUNNNNN we have in your class... it's a one of a kind experience~! =) I was in the DL class last year and am now an Architecture major. The class helped me so much, because, once I got to Tech, I no longer had to take math. This first semester, a lot of my friends didn't do so well taking both Studio and Calculus (1,2 or 3), but I had a leg up because I already got those out of the way… I really recommend the class to anyone.
