Using Slope Fields

Published on 06/09/2008

Activity Overview

Students identify whether a slope field approximately reflects a differential equation. They also determine whether a potential solution fits the slope field.

Key Steps

  • Image

    Students will practice interpreting slope fields by matching them up with differential equations.

  • Image

    Students will use a slope field program for the graphing handheld to generate slope fields for any differential equation of the form.
