Methods for Numerical Integration

Logo for Methods for Numerical Integration
This applet allows a person to test several numerical integration approximation methods by having the user fill out theleft and right endpoint fields, type in the formula, select the method, and pressing the calculate button. For example trytyping in -1 for the left endpoint, 1 for the right endpoint, and y=x^2 for the formula then press calculate. For each method selected, the estimated integral for that method will appear in the text area at the bottom. Certainfunctions will also appear on the... More

This material was very interisting to me. When I first opened the web site I was a little confused on how to navigate through the material but once I figured it out I checked out some of the web pages as well as some of the peer reviews and realized that even though I didn't quite understand what I was looking at I was interested to find out more.

Technical Remarks:

The web site drew me in and I thought it was set up very well especially if you are a beginner. This allowed me the opportunity to try the different aspects of the web site.
Time spent reviewing site: I spent approxamitly 45 minutes on this web site
