6.4 Separable Differential Equations

6.4 Separable Differential Equations

Author: rebecca martin

The Objectives of this lesson are:

  • Determine what characteristics of an equation categorize it as a Separable Differential Equation (SDE)
  • Determine the process for solving a SDE
  • Understand the difference between an explicit and implicit solution


Copy the notes.  For this video I DO want you to do a summary paragraph or bulleted list that includes the details of each of the objectives listed above.

Video notes: DANGIT!! I realized that although the notes are correct, I accidentally called an implicit function an explicit function once by accident.  See if you can catch my mistake!
