Good Question 2: 2002 BC 5

This is the second in my occasional series on good questions, good from the point of view of teaching about the concepts involved. This one is about differential equations and slope fields.The question is from the 2002 BC calculus exam. Question 5. while a BC question, all but part b are suitable for AB classes.…

Slope Fields

Differential Equation 2 – Slope Fields Of course, we always want to see the graph of an equation we are studying. The graph of a differential equation is a slope field.  A first derivative expressed as a function of x and y gives the slope of the tangent line to the solution curve that goes…
