Students will use the basic integration formulas solving definite integrals with this fun password search activity.
Activity Directions: Students solve 12 definite integrals using basic integration techniques, the properties of definite integrals (integral of sum of functions and moving the constant across the integral sign) and the fundamental theorem of calculus. Students use a given table to find which character (letter, number or sign) corresponds to each of their answers and fill in another table to obtain a funny password. Students tell the password to the teacher. If it is correct, then they have solved all integrals right.
Students can work independently or in pairs.
Answer key is included.
