MA101: Single-Variable Calculus I

Unit 7: Integration   In the last unit of this course, you will learn about “integral calculus,” a subfield of calculus that studies the area formed under the curve of a function.  Although its relationship with the derivative is not necessarily intuitive, integral calculus is closely linked to the derivative, which you will revisit in this unit.

- Define antiderivatives and the indefinite integral. - State the properties of the indefinite integral. - Relate the definite integral to the initial value problem and the area problem. - Set up and calculate a Riemann sum. - State the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus and use it to calculate definite integrals. - State and apply basic properties of the definite integral. - Use substitution to compute definite integrals.

7.1 Motivation   - Reading: Whitman College: David Guichard’s Calculus: Chapter 7: Integration: “Section 7.1: Two Examples” Link: Whitman College: David Guichard’s Calculus: Chapter 7: Integration: “Section 7.1: Two Examples” (PDF)
 
Instructions: Please click on the link above and read Section 7.1 (pages 145-149) in its entirety.  This reading introduces the integral through two examples.  The first example addresses the question of how to determine the distance traveled based only on information about velocity.  The second example addresses the question of how to determine the area under the graph of a function.  Surprisingly, these two questions are closely related to each other and to the derivative.

7.2 The Fundamental Theorem of Calculus   Note: The Fundamental Theorem of Calculus is the apex of our course.  It explains the relationship between the derivative and the integral, tying the two major facets of this course together.  In the previous section, you learned the definition of the definite integral as a limit of a Riemann Sum.  The computations were long and involved.  In this subunit, you will learn about the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus, which makes the computation of definite integrals significantly easier.

    Instructions: Please click on the link above and read Section 7.2 (pages 149-155) in its entirety.  Pay close attention to the treatment of Riemann sums, which lead to the definite integral.  The Fundamental Theorem of Calculus explicitly describes the relationship between integrals and derivatives.

Instructions: Please click on the link above and read Section 8.1 (pages 161-166) in its entirety.  This section explains the process of taking the integral of slightly more complicated functions.  We do this by implementing a “change of variables,” or rewriting a complicated integral in terms of elementary functions that we already know how to integrate.  Simply put, integration by substitution is merely the act of taking the chain rule in reverse.
