On Teaching of Solving Methods of Euler’s Differential Equation in Technical Colleges
Euler’s differential equation(2nd order)
Transfer student admissions
Questionnaire for students
Euler’s differential equation is explained by two kinds of solving methods in texts mainly used in the technical colleges. In the present paper, we call the solving method to set y = x Solving Method I and call the solving method to set x = et Solving Method II. Showing some examples, we discuss the difficulties in teaching students how to use the solving methods and try to provide several improvement plans to them with a questionnaire for students. We also refer the format in which Euler’s differential equation is presented in the transfer problem.
