Modelling with Differential Equations link

Modelling with Differential Equations 

Stage: 5

This article covers what differential equations are, and offers some insight into how to formulate one describing a real life situation.

First Order Differential Equations link

First Order Differential Equations 

Stage: 5

In STEP and other advanced mathematics examinations, two main methods are used to solve first order differential equations: separation of variables and the method of integrating factors. This article reviews how the two work.

Second Order Differential Equations link

Second Order Differential Equations 

Stage: 5

Many modelling situations force us to deal with second order differential equations. In STEP and other advanced mathematics examinations a particular set of second order differential equations arise, and this article covers how to solve them.
