You are here: Home CODEE Journal Newsletters


From 1992–1997, CODEE ("Consortium of ODE Experiments" was our former name), with generous support from the National Science Foundation, published a newsletter that provided a regular source of ideas, inspiration, and experiments for instructors of ODEs. The goal of CODEE was to share the rapidly growing wealth of computational instruction techniques with as many teachers and students of differential equations as possible. This digital library contains all of the past issues of the CODEE Newsletter.
