This is a QR code. A QR Code is a 2-dimensional barcode, which has encoded in it a URL (web address), text, or other information. It can be read by a QR code scanner, including QR scanner smartphone apps. Once you have an app installed on your smartphone, open the app and hold your phone’s camera over a QR code to read it. Most QR codes you’ll come across have a URL encoded, so chances are when you read the QR code it will take you to a web page.

Description:

This applet is a sub-site of the Math Applets for Calculus at SLU site. This applet is designed for the visual exploration of functions defined as a sum over k of terms in x.  The user can also enter and plot another function: for example, the limit function of the series when it can be expressed in closed form.

The next time I teach Riemann sums, I intend to use this applet. It is straight forward in its design. It could be useful as either an in-class demonstration or as an homework assignment for students. The interactive nature of the applet has the potential to keep students engaged while developing their intuition for Riemann sums.
Time spent reviewing site: I spent an hour or so playing with the functionality of this site.
