This lesson covers the basics of differential equations. Students are introduced to the basic terminology associated with differential equations and they learn how to verify solutions to differential equations. Initial-value problems are also introduced.
This lesson is appropriate for both AP Calculus AB and BC, as well as college calculus.
Detailed answer keys are included.
The topics covered include:
-Definition of a Differential Equation
-Order of a Differential Equation
-Linear and Nonlinear Differential Equations
-Verifying Solutions to Differential Equations
-Modeling with Differential Equations
