Homework Part 1 Title: intro (1 of 19) 6.1 Differential Equations & Slope Fields Ch 3.9 Definition of Differentials: Let y = f(x) be differentiable on an open interval containing x. The differential of x, dx, is a nonzero real number. The differential of y, dy, is: dy = f ' (x) dx Class Notes: Prof. G. Battaly, Westchester Community College, NY

Homework Part 1 Title: intro (7 of 19) 6.1 Differential Equations & Slope Fields What about: dy/dx = x + y If we cannot solve a diff eq analytically, consider the slope field associated with the equation. This gives us a graphical representation of the slopes of the general solution. Class Notes: Prof. G. Battaly, Westchester Community College, NY
