Students explore particular solutions to a differential equation for different initial conditions and then match differential equations to their slope fields.
In Part 1, students will explore particular solutions to a differential equation for different initial conditions. Slope fields are investigated. Students are asked to describe their observations.
In the DE matching activity students will use the strategies they have developed from the first part of the activity to identify the slope field that corresponds to a differential equation.
The teacher document contains a list of five strategies that can be used to reinforce what students have discovered. These strategies should be discussed with students before they complete the matching activity.
The file dematch.89t should be run upon completion of the matching activity so that students can check their solutions.
