### Section 6.1: Euler’s Method

Local Linearity and Differential Equations

Local Linearity can be used to numerically approximate an equation without knowing the particular solution. Consider the differential equation if . (The blue curve below is the particular solution. Assume this is unknown.)

Not a good approximation. Consider smaller pieces.
