GeoGebra Animated Applets for Teaching Cauchy-Euler Differential Equations in Engineering

Jorge Olivares Funes, Maria Rojas, and Elvis Valero Kari

 

ABSTRACT: 

Various studies (1) have already shown that the proper use of GeoGebra helps mathematics in understanding and learning them, that is why we will use this software as an important complement to learning differential equations.GeoGebra is becoming increasingly important in the teaching and learning process, especially in engineering math content. We use GeoGebra to create animated applets. corresponding to the Cauchy-Euler differential equations with emphasis on those of the second linear order and their solutions. These applets were designed as support material for the student since it allows them to visualize and understand the algebraic and geometric characteristics of the solutions. The sliders produced by the applets for mathematical analysis, greatly help in the development of learning the differential equations see (4).
