Introduction to the Integral


Adding slices of infinitely small width leads us to find the whole. This method is called the limit of sum, which is the basic principle behind integration. Integration can be used to find areas, volumes, central points and many useful things. This module will describe the method of finding the area under a curve, using integration.

Learning Objectives:

After completing this module, you will be able to:
- Define the definite integral as the limit of a sum.
- Use definite integrals to find the area between a curve and the x-axis.
