  • What are first-order differential equations?
  • What are ordinary differential equations?
  • What are ODE's?
  • What are separable differential equations?
  • What differential equations are not solvable?
  • What are direction fields?
  • What are integral curves?
  • How do you draw a direction field?
This is a really great video introduction to ordinary differential equations. It explains exactly the geometric interpretation of what is going on. This lesson gives you a very complete, over-arching view of what differential equations look like in a plane. Also, direction fields and integral curves are discussed and drawn for equations.
