Students graphically and numerically explore Riemann sums and develop an understanding of summation notation for adding these rectangles.
In this activity, students will use an applet to explore the left-endpoint, right-endpoint, and midpoint approximations.
Next, students will further explore Riemann sums using summation notation. Students will also explore several programs involving different integral approximations.
