This week in Diff Eq...

I am teaching Exact equations and substitution methods this week.  I wasn't able to find a good modeling activity, so I won't be doing modeling specifically this week.  Next week I will be doing numerical analysis, so I hope to find a good modeling project.

The textbooks I am using work well -- I am jumping around between the two (sometimes using both for the same topic), but I think it's good training for these students to get used to using multiple sources to get the job done.  I have never, in the "real world", been able to rely on a single source to do a complicated task.  My lectures are hopefully the tie that keeps the different sources of information tied together.  And... you can't beat the price of an open source book!
