STEP 3 Differential Equations *Updated*

This module introduces you to STEP 3 differential equations questions.

Each STEP 3 module consists of some STEP questions, some topic notes and useful formulae, a "hints" sheet and a "solutions" booklet.

STEP questions are challenging, so don't worry if you get stuck. These STEP 3 modules assume that you have already begun to develop your problem-solving skills and approach to STEP questions by working on the Foundation modules and the STEP 2 modules. You can also ask for support, help and hints on the STEP Support discussion forum.

About this assignment

More complicated differential equations are included in the STEP 3 specifications, including integrating factors, second order differential equations and coupled first order simultaneous differential equations (predator-prey systems).
