Slope fields essentially draw the slopes of line segments that go through certain points. Letโs consider the following differential equation:

The slope (*m*) at point *(x, y)*, in this case, is just *x + y*, which we can put into a table for various coordinates:

We can use this data to draw an approximate solution to the differential equation by **drawing short line segments **through each point that have the corresponding slope: ๐
