Abstract

Resource Image Students go from the solution for y'(t) = k*y(t) to a natural extension to the solution conjecture of a system of two constant coefficient, homogeneous, linear differential equations introducing eigenvalues and eigenvectors through student discovery.

Description

For our linear homogenous system of two differential equations we  conjecture a vector solution for X(t) which has the best of both worlds

(1) nice exponential form with no matrices in the exponent and

(2) vector status where we can see the pieces of the solution.
