Disclaimer:
This review is by no means complete. Please study the homework as well as the lecture
notes. These questions are just an outline of the material.
1. Chapter 1 KNOW: deﬁnition of diﬀerential equation, diﬀerence between explicit and implicit so
lution, initial value conditions, how to sketch a graph, isocline, given a direction ﬁeld sketch the
approximate solution.
(a) Solve
dy
dx
= ln(
x
) with
P
= (1

1).
(b) Let
dy
dx
=
r

π
sin(
x
2
). Where is the solution monotonic? What symmetry (if any) does
y
(

)
have?
2. Chapter 2 KNOW: autonomous ﬁrst order diﬀerential equation, equilibrium solutions, stable, unsta
ble and semistable solutions, phase line, ExistenceUniqueness theorem, applications like Malthus
Models (simple exponential growth), and Logistic Models.
(a) Determine the behavior of the equilibria for
