Description

The scenario uses an Inquiry Based Learning. 

The goal is for the students to understand how the right hand side of the differential equation and the initial condition relate to the physical phenomenon being described.

This scenario also hints at the notion of an equilibrium and the speed at which an equilibrium is approached.
