This works fine under Mathematica 9 though (sorry I typed in the bounds wrong):

Code:

`VectorPlot[{x^2, y}, {x, -3, 3}, {y, -3, 3}]`

Is this what you mean? Or do you want to differentiate/integrate it first etc..

Hi Ackbach,

Thanks in advance!

I doubt whether WolframAlpha supports drawing slope fields. There is a discussion about this in their forums but there's no indication there on how to do this. I used to draw them using Maxima.

Code:

```
load("plotdf");
plotdf([1,x^2],[x,-2,2],[y,-2,2]);
```

You might also be interested in the applet posted in the forum thread I have liked above.

That last one seems pretty good. Thanks for that link!Hi Ackbach,
