Numeric Computation of Integrals

Numeric Computation of Integrals

Created by John Michel for the Connected Curriculum Project, this is a module to calculate numerical approximations to definite integrals by summing the areas of rectangles or trapezoids, to understand how these approximations improve as the number of areas is increased, and to deduce Simpson's Rule. This is one lesson within a much larger set of learning modules hosted by Duke University.... Show More
