Starting Integration

Behind every definite integral is a Riemann sums. Students need to know about Riemann sums so that they can understand definite integrals (a shorthand notation for the limit if a Riemann sun) and the Fundamental theorem of Calculus. Theses posts help prepare students for Riemann sums.
