PREFACE

This supplement has been prepared for use in conjunction with the seventh editions of ELEMENTARY DIFFERNTIAL EQUATIONS AND BOUNDARY VALUE PROBLEMS and ELEMENTARY DIFFERENTIAL EQUATIONS, both by W.E. Boyce and R.C. DiPrima. The supplement contains a sampling of the problems from each section of the text. In most cases the complete details in determining the solutions are given while in the remainder of the problems helpful hints are provided. The problems chosen in each section represent, wherever possible, the variety of applications and types of examples that are covered in the written material of the text, thereby providing the student a complete set of examples from which to learn.

Students should be aware that following these solutions is very different from designing and constructing one's own solution.Using this supplemental resource appropriately for learning differential equations is outlined as follows:

1. Make an honest attempt to solve the problem without using the guide.

2. If needed, glance at the beginning of the solution in the guide and then try again to generate the complete solution.Continue using the guide for hints when you reach an impasse.
