  11. Informed Conjecturing in a Modeling Context Differential Equations

    29 Mar 2017 | Articles and Publications | Contributor(s): Karen Bliss

    We examine two differential equations, (1) first order exponential growth or decay and (2) second order, linear, constant coefficient differential equations, and show the advantage of learning differential equations in a modeling context for informed conjectures of their solution. We follow with...
