3.1 Modeling with Differential Equations
By the end of your studying, you should know:
On-screen applet instructions:
The applet draws a slope field for an equation y' = f(x,y). It allows several choices of the function, and allows changing the
resolution of the grid. Drag the mouse to draw a solution curve through the point P. Click the mouse (instead of drag) to set a new initial point P. Click here for more details.
ExamplesMatch three equations with the differential equations they satisfy.
