Key Ideas to Cover on Integration

  • A definite integral is the limit of a Riemann sum

  • The definite integral is the net accumulation of a rate of change

    or


All the important concepts related to definite integrals can be taught and understood without knowing antiderivatives.


  • Calculus AP should include opportunities for students to understand

    • Area under a graph

      • Riemann Sum – Definition of a Definite Integral

    • Ways to Evaluate a Definite Integral

      • Fundamental Theorem

    • How integrals accumulate area

    • How functions can be by integrals

    • Techniques for finding indefinite integrals

    • Applications of integrals


  • Deal with graphical and tabular sets of data to find area

  • That can be represented by a bounded region.

  • That can be approximated using several methods.

  • Relationships between approximations.

  • How more accurate approximation be found

  • The units of measure for .


Introducing Integration through the Area Model


Figure 1 shows the velocity of an object, v(t), over a 3-minute interval. Determine the distance traveled over the interval

. The area bounded by the graph of v(t) and the t-axis for represents the distance traveled by this object. The distance can be represented by the

definite integral .


The following chart gives the velocity of a particle, v(t), at 0.5 second intervals. Estimate the distance traveled by the particle in the three seconds using three different methods. Each method is an approximation for .


Investigating How to Find Area using Riemann Sums and Trapezoids

Using the NUMINT program or

LMRRAM and TRAPEZOID program on a TI83/84


Things You Should have Observed

  • As the number of rectangles increases on monotonically increasing functions, the left hand sums increase, but remain less then the area.


Things You Should have Observed

  • which sums are always greater than the actual area

  • Which sums are always less than the actual area


Things You Should have Observed

  • The limit of the left hand sum equals the limit of the right hand sum and equals the area of the region.

  • area of the region or


Students should be able to

  • Set up and evaluate left, right and midpoint Riemann sums from analytical data, tabular data, or graphical data.

  • Set up and evaluate a Trapezoidal sum approximation from analytical data, tabular data, or graphical data.


  • Determine Units of Measure:

    • The units of the definite integral are the units of the Riemann Sum

      • The units of the function multiplied by the units of the independent variable.


  • Verbal Explanation

    • Students need to be able to tell what a definite integral represents in the context of the problem and identify the units of measure.

    • Very common AP question on Free Response Questions

Fun Finding Volume


Solids with Known Cross Sectional Area


Create a table and a sketch for

scale for the grid is 0.5 cm

on the x and y axes


Re-sketch the graph of f (x).

The scale for this grid is 0.25 cm on

both the x and y axes.


Select one of the figures. Cut out the 9 shapes, keeping the tabs on the shape. Fold the trapezoidal trapezoidal tab. Glue the tab on the graph so that the edge of the shape is the f(x) segment. Face all the colored faces in the same direction.
