Derive the equation for angular frequency for simple harmonic motion of a spring.

2. Relevant equations

Derive omega = sqrt(k/m) from F = -kx

(sorry i don't know how to use notation)

3. The attempt at a solution

I asked my teacher how to do this, and he used some crazy math I didn't learn yet, including Euler's identity and differential equations. I'm in an AP calculus bc class, and i understand differential equations, just not some aspects. Does anyone know a simple solution for this? Thanks in advance
