Hi,

Today we learned about integration!

Integration is the concept of successive summation in order to calculate the area under a curve.

In class we solved this problem:

Compute the integral by computing the Riemann sums for a regular partition.

Using Mathematica we obtained the following:

, for each i

, for each i

Please note that for a very large n,

Now the easy way:

We then used Mathematica to get the same answer : …much easier :)
