"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 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 - Once you purchase our text we invite you to peruse the supplementary materials for Students and Instructors. You will find code samples, hints, solutions, and data sets.

Proceeds sustain the SIMIODE Community of Practice. SIMIODE is a non-profit organization focused on a modeling first method of teaching differential equations.
