Part I: 1) Euler’s method: Euler(func, x0, xf, y0, N):= | your function here The function will receive the name of a differential equation (func) to be solved, the first and last values of the independent variable ( ), the initial condition for the dependent variable, the number of steps at which to calculate after the starting point , up to and including . The function will use this information to return a vector of values between and including and , and the corresponding vector of solutions for each . The vectors and will both consist of points. 2) Heun’s method: Heun(func, x0, xf, y0, N, Tol):= | your function here The function uses all the same information as 1) above, with the addition of a tolerance value to stop updating the
