I am not a frequent user of Mathematica and many of you have assisted me 
  in the past with implicit plots and vertical tangent lines etc.

Now I have to teach slope fields to my AP Calculus students, and while 
we can see them on the TI calculators, I would like to generate some 
using Mathematica so I can make some good print-outs.  I have used 
vector plots in the past to illustrate the main ideas, but they "don't 
look like the slope fields" in texts and on AP's.

Can anyone help me on this?

Thanks so much.
