This activity sheet will introduce students to the concept of a definite integral through finding area using Riemann Sums and Trapezoids. Students observe that as the number of rectangles and trapezoids are increased the sums approach the bounded area or the integral of f(x) from a to b.
Help your Calculus and AP Calculus students learn to move from a limit statement to a definite integral with this graphic organizer. There are a full set of directions on using the graphic organizer and an example of using the graphic organizer. In addition there are 6 sample questions included wi
This activity sheet has 15 conceptually based questions on the writing Riemann sums and definite integrals. Geometry is used to solve many of the definite integrals. One question deals with a point of discontinuity. The questions are designed to be used with Advanced Placement Calculus students.
These 32 task cards cover many type questions asked on the Calculus AP test. There are 8 sets of 4 cards. Cards can be set up in stations and students can be asked to complete between one and four of the four cards in each set. In addition to Riemann sums, four cards deal with trapezoidal approxi
The bundle includes four products on Riemann sums that can be purchased separately in my store:
