Why We Wrote This Book
Page 1 of 4

We have written this book to enable everyone to be an active participant in their own learning. Our objective is to introduce Ordinary Differential Equations (ODEs) in a manner that invites students to think, experiment, and comprehend. We want students to see ODEs as a logical extension of calculus—not only to understand them, but also to see them as a natural tool for investigating many aspects of science and engineering. We encourage students to explore differential equations by employing technology as an instrument to check, discover, and interpret the behavior of solutions. Our intent is to provide lively reading with compelling applications, projects, and experiments, that supply students with opportunities to explore the relationship between the differential equation and the process it models.
