# Slope Fields

As discussed in the previous unit, **differential equations** relate a function of an independent variable and the functions derivatives. A **slope field**** **is a graphical representation of a differential equation on a finite set of points in the plane.

Slope fields provide information about the behavior of solutions to first-order differential equations.

Solutions to differential equations are functions or families of functions.
