This site contains an app that generates a direction filed based on 1-st order differential equation entered by user. A user can also enter the general solution using the independent variable and C as the parameter. This site is a subsite of Exploring Multivariable Calculus site.
Type of Material:
Course project, supplemental resources, assignments source for Introductory Differential Equation or Calculus III courses.
Identify Major Learning Goals:
To provide students with an online simulation tool that can be easily used to visualize the direction field for the first order differential equation.
Target Student Population:
Students taking Introductory Differential Equation course or Calculus III course. General Physics II students can still benefit from this simulation tool.
Prerequisite Knowledge or Skills:
Calculus II course.
This site contains a very accurate user-friendly online simulation tool that graphically genrates the direction field for a first-order ordinary differential equations. A solution to an initial value problem containing an input equation can be graphically produced with a signle click.
Potential Effectiveness as a Teaching Tool
Both instructor and student can easily use this site in Differential Equation and Calculus III classes as efficient online simulation tool for Direction Field topic visualization purposes.
Ease of Use for Both Students and Faculty
Students and instructors can access this simulation app in this site easily by entering their differential equation of interest or even they can select one of the suggested equations’ examples in the site from the list of differential equations.
