Hot Coffee

Students investigate differential equations and slope fields.  In this differential equations and slope fields lesson, students determine how much time can pass before a cup of coffee is safe to drink.  Students use a differential equation to solve the problem algebraically.  Students create a slope field to represent the time at which it is safe to drink the coffee.
