Learning Exercise: Riemann Sums and Area Approximations

Title:
Riemann Sums and Area Approximations
Material:
Description:
After covering the standard course material on area under a curve, Riemann sums and numerical integration, Calculus I students are given a write-pair-share activity that directs them to predict the best area approximation methods for each of several different functions. Afterwards, the instructor employs a Web-based applet that visually displays each method and provides the corresponding numerical approximations.
