Understanding the difference in the definite integral of a function and the area enclosed by a function and the x-axis is basic when students first learn definite integrals. The students work and explain both in this foldable.
All my foldables are self-guided which allows the students to start the foldable in class for about 10 to 15 minutes then complete the AP style examples at home. This foldable can be used alone or glued into an Interactive Notebook the size of a 9½ by 7½ composition book. Hope this is helpful. Enjoy!
This is the second foldable for Ch. 4 in our calculus textbook on integration thus the numbering 4-2. You can find other foldables related to the integration chapter at
