Textbook
The book we're using in the Fall will be "Differential Equations", by Paul
Blanchard, Bob Devaney and Glen Hall (Fourth Edition).
Important NOTE: The book is often sold "with DE Tools
Printed Access Card". We don't require that, so if you're buying
a used version without it, don't worry. Here's an Amazon link
with more book details:

 There also is an optional Student Solution Manual Available
(typically, these have more
detailed solutions to odd numbered problems)
 We'll generally be covering topics from Chapters 16, as well as Appendices A and B.

 A nice online Euler's Method calculator.
 A note about using the Java software on the Math Lab Computers: Before you run it for the first time,
rightclick on the icon, then choose the "Permissions" tab, then click on the box that says: "Allow executing this file as program".
(You might need to do something similar on your home machine as well).
