This technique narrative guides a discovery-based approach to learning the basics of numerical methods for first order differential equations, by following the graphical and analytical perspectives of the forward Euler method and second order Taylor method. These methods are motivated by velocity field and dead reckoning navigation over two dimensions to locate a ship lost at sea.
