Overview of: Solving pure-time differential equations with the Forward-Euler algorithm

The Forward-Euler algorithm is an algorithm to approximate the solution of a differential equation, such as a pure-time differential equation considered here. Starting at the initial condition, one take small steps with the slope determined by the differential equation. The key to the algorithm is to look up a new slope at each time step by consulting the differential equation.
