  • Ggb.gif 3D Rectangles and Circles Watch the rectangles and circles pop out of the graph! Grab the Red dashed lines to change a and b, move the sliders and see what happens! The height only applies to the rectangles. By David Sankey

  • Ggb.gif Riemann Animations Left hand, right hand and trapeziods, and animate everything in between! How could you find the midpoints? Simply grab the red dashed lines to change a and b. By David Sankey


  • Htm.gifArea Between Curves Ggb.gifDownload Given the two functions f(x)=c(x-x1)(x-x2)(x-x3)(x-x4) and g(x)=0.6x+constant , we visualize the area surrounded by the two curves y=f(x) and y=g(x) and the vertical lines through the ends of the interval [a, b]. You can study different cases by changing the x-intercepts and the coefficient of f(x), by dragging y=g(x), and the ends of the interval. The area for each interval and the total area are calculated in a spreadsheet. The value of the definite integral of the difference f(x)-g(x) on the interval [a,b] is given in cell B10 for comparison with the area between the curves. By Irina Boyadzhiev
