##### Hint

Online, for the phase line, specify the number of equilibria with $n_e$, then drag the red circles to the locations of the equilibria. Click the red circles to change between open and closed symbols. Click the line segments between the equilibria to display the vector field. Click again to change the direction of the vector field.

Online, for the plot versus time, specify the number of equilibra with $n_e$. Since equilibrium solutions are constant, they appear has horizontal lines. Drag the pink points to the locations of the equilibria, and click to change between solid and dashed lines. Drag $n_c$ to specify the number of additional solution curves, drag the points on the vertical axis to specify initial conditions. Click the curves to specify their speed profile, which will alternate among speeding up, speeding up then slowing down, and slowing down. Drag the right points to determine the ending values of the curves.

Since for this example, we don't have a plot of the function determining the speed $\diff{ s }{t}$, it's hard to know whether or not the solution is first speeding up before slowing down, so it doesn't matter what speed profile you use, as long as the curve starts and ends in the right places.
