Approximating Definite Integrals from Tables

Print Lesson

Objective

SWBAT use definite integrals to compute the area under basic functions; SWBAT estimate area under a function given a table with equal and unequal subintervals.

Big Idea

Do Riemann Sums still work with unequal rectangle widths? What if we do not know the function’s equation? You betcha…
