Applications of Integration – Area & Average Value

Usually the first application of integration is to find the area bounded by a function and the x-axis, followed by finding the area between two functions. We begin with these problems First some calculator hints Graphing Integrals using a graphing calculator to graph functions defined by integrals Graphing Calculator Use  and Definition Integrals – Exam…

Area Between Curves

Applications of Integration 1 – Area Between Curves The first thing to keep in mind when teaching the applications of integration is Riemann sums. The thing is that when you set up and solve the majority of application problems you cannot help but develop a formula for the situation. Students think formulas are handy and…
