Differential Equations and Slope Fields

Here are 5 videos from section 6-1.  The fourth video is related to Euler's method, the topic IS on the BC exam, but not the AB exam.  I DO want all to watch the video though as we will be talking about it in relation to slope fields.

Please print the documents provided to work on as you watch the videos.

After watching the videos, use the Q & A section to ask a question based upon something you are unsure of.  As you see the questions of others, attempt to respond to those questions, either adding your own similar question, or trying to solve their issue.  I expect to see at least one comment from each of you.  But probably the comments will only be in 4 or 5 threads as you ask your question inside the thread of someone with a similar question.

If you have trouble with the videos, they are also on YouTube:

This is a BC topic, but is really fairly simple and has value in understanding the concept of slope fields as well.
