Worldwide Differential Equations with Linear Algebra, 1st edition is designed for a one-semester undergraduate course in ordinary differential equations and linear algebra. This text adopts a concise writing style and careful selection of topics to keep the book shorter than many others on this subject. The WebAssign component to this textbook provides students with immediate feedback, videos of worked problems, and a searchable eBook.

Features

  • Read It links under each question quickly jump to the corresponding section of a searchable eBook to enhance student learning.
  • Select questions contain links to videos of the worked problem, ideal for visual learners.
  • WebAssign's patent-pending grading engine uses a series of robust grading routines customized for each exercise to accept all correct answers for the same complex question. Read our Answer Evaluation and Grading System report to learn more.

Questions Available within WebAssign

Most questions from this textbook are available in WebAssign. The online questions are identical to the textbook questions except for minor wording changes necessary for Web use. Whenever possible, variables, numbers, or words have been randomized so that each student receives a unique version of the question. This list is updated nightly.
