Hey Guys,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I am really confused about the first problem on my first problem set in Diff Eq (not auspicious is it? Oh well...)

Draw the Direction field y' = y -y^2. Identify Isoclines and any equlibrium solutions.

I don't understand how to approach this problem because doesn't the y^2 term make the equation non-linear? Also, my professor mentioned that equilibrium solutions could be stable or unstable without telling us what that entailed so can you guys please enlighten me with that , also?

Thank you so much in advance.
