- Unique blend of traditional algebraic and modern qualitative geometric approaches ...show more- Tempers the classic pure math approach (algebraic) with the practical, applied aspects of modern DE uses.
- Strong systems approach - Features a full chapter on matrix algebra, followed by three systems chapters. Practical uses of DEs today are not single equations but rather looking at several DEs using a computer.
- Novel modeling approach - Emphasizesproblems and approaches.
- Flexible use of technology - Focuses on solving and interpreting through the inclusion of several optional technology projects. The text is platform-neutral.
