I'm a maths lecturer working at all levels from primary up to higher education and including essential skills and adult learning. "Pie" is a pun. I'd be disappointed if you you came here to buy meat pies. :-]

Areas under graphs

(0)
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.
