Bundle—paperback text and lifetime FREE electronic editions.

This paperback and PDF bundle give you access to your textbook in the way that works best for you. Sometimes you like to hold a real, physical book in your hand, and sometimes you want the book on your screen.

Bundle Types:

Download Link for Personal Use
You will immediately receive a unique download link in your email. You may download the PDF to any device you own. You will also receive a paperback copy.
Download Code
Within ~72 hours you will receive a unique code and instructions for its use. This is intended for bookstores wishing to stock our book, administrative personnel purchasing for a faculty member, parents ordering for their student, groups making a bulk purchase, or anyone ordering the textbook for another person. Any order of 6 or more copies automatically receives our standard 20% Resellers Discount. Each bundle comes with one code. The email address you supply in checkout will receive the order confirmation and code(s), so we advise that you use your own email address and distribute the code(s) yourself. The paperback will be mailed to the shipping address.

In both cases, expect the paperback book to arrive within 4–11 business days, and the person who downloads the PDF will receive an updated link whenever a new version of the PDF is available.

"This book is the only one this reviewer is aware of that presents differential equations in a modeling context rather than merely adding a bit of modeling to the standard presentation. If you want to study the mathematics of differential equations in a modeling context, you are in the right place."

Dr. Glenn Ledder, University of Nebraska, review in The UMAP Journal

Have a look at the Table of Contents and Chapter 1 (PDF, 3.92M) to see a sample of the modeling first approach, scope of topics, and how this will help your teaching and enhance your students' learning and understanding.

  • Modeling first approach throughout
  • Links to many SIMIODE Modeling Scenarios and other sources
  • Fresh narrative on the rationale for studying differential equations
  • Practice problems and questions, many with solutions
  • Projects in each section
  • Modeling threads through the text
  • Extra sections and appendices, e.g., control theory, linear algebra, circuits

Supplementary Materials - We invite you to peruse the supplementary materials for Students and Instructors. You will find helpful code samples, hints, solutions, and data sets.

Proceeds sustain the SIMIODE Community of Practice. SIMIODE is a US-based 501(c)(3) non-profit organization focused on a modeling first method of teaching differential equations.
