In this methods of applied mathematics learning exercise, learners solve 6 different types of problems related to variational calculus. First, they determine the first integrals of the Euler-Lagrange equations corresponding to the optimizations of each functional. Then, they determine the solution to a brachistochrone problem for bead moving between 2 different points and sketch their solution.
