Why is Eulers method to solving (numerically) DE's included on the new AP
syllabus? It seems (with calculator in hand) that slope fields are
numrically/graphically sufficient. What have I missed about Eulers method
that should give it such "weighty" status on the new syllabus? Are there
plans to review, evaluate and if needed modify the new syllabus by ETS?
