Euler's Method

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 non-mathematics
text. I was excited!

The end is near.....pat ourselves and our hard-working students on the back.
