Written as a supplement for use with most ODE texts, this book helps students in introductory ODE courses broaden their understanding of differential equations. It changes the emphasis in the traditional ODE course by using MATLAB to introduce numerical methods, geometric interpretation, symbolic computation, and qualitative analysis. The book focuses on the specific features of MATLAB that are useful for analyzing differential equations. In addition, the book includes a brief introduction to Simulink and uses Symbolic Math Toolbox to demonstrate symbolic approaches.
