Euler's Method
Posted:

Greetings, all.
I am in the fortunate position of also teaching AP Physics. I happened to be reviewing a calculus based physics text (Principles of Physics: a text for scientists and engineers by Raymond Serway), and I came across a section called Numerical Modeling in Particle Dynamics, and there is a brief but thorough discussion of Euler's Method of solving differential equations. It's nice to see this topic in an undergraduate nonmathematics text. I was excited!
The end is near.....pat ourselves and our hardworking students on the back.
