A First Course in Differential Equations with Modeling Applications – Dennis G. Zill – 7th Edition


This proven and accessible speaks to beginning and math through a wealth of pedagogical aids, an abundance of examples, explanations, “Remarks” boxes, definitions, and group projects. Written in a straightforward, readable, and helpful style, the book provides a thorough treatment of boundary-value problems and partial equations.

A work that has been characterized by a clear and simple exposure in the teaching of , and by the creation of models and the use of to solve problems. Likewise, it reflects a clear delimitation of the three ways of approaching the differential equations: analytical, qualitative and numerical. In this edition the sections of exercises have been improved with new problems that in some cases require the use of an algebraic program.
