VisualDsolve is a Mathematica package designed to allow the user to visually explore solutions of ordinary differential equations. The package comes with an extensive manual that shows numerous examples of using VisualDSolve. The article under review exhibits three examples of ways that an instructor can use a graphical approach in order to investigate traditional topics in a standard differential equations course, including a driven mass-spring system and the Poincaré-Bendixson Theorem.
