than a third of a representative sample of U.S. engineering educators considered the study of differential equations to be necessary for an engineer’s education. When the Society for the Promotion of Engineering Education surveyed over 500 teachers of engineering during the 1920s, it found that only 29% of the instructors believed that differential equations were of primary importance in the standard engineering curriculum [1].
