Areas under graphs

Areas under graphs

Suitable for Higher Tier GCSE Mathematics or Further Mathematics, this resource introduces students to a small variety of methods for working out areas underneath graphs. Starting with the counting of squares method, it introduces the Trapezium Rule and others. A chart at the end allows students to record the different estimates they have in order to compare methods, and it concludes with a few thoughts about real-world applications and the basis for integral calculus.
