Finding the area under a curve: Riemann, Trapezoidal, and Simpson’s Rule Adguary Calwile Laura Rogers Autrey~ 2nd Per. 3/14/11

**Introduction to area under a curve**

Before integration was developed, people found the area under curves by dividing the space beneath into rectangles, adding the area, and approximating the answer. As the number of rectangles, n, increases, so does the accuracy of the area approximation.

3
**Introduction to area under a curve (cont.)**

There are three methods we can use to find the area under a curve: Riemann sums, the trapezoidal rule, and Simpson’s rule. For each method we must know: f(x)- the function of the curve n- the number of partitions or rectangles (a, b)- the boundaries on the x-axis between which we are finding the area

4
Riemann Sums There are three types of Riemann Sums Right Riemann: Left Riemann: Midpoint Riemann:

5
**Right Riemann- Overview**

Right Riemann places the right point of the rectangles along the curve to find the area. The equation that is used for the RIGHT RIEMANN ALWAYS begins with: And ends with Within the brackets!

6
**Right Riemann- Example**

Remember: Right Only Given this problem below, what all do we need to know in order to find the area under the curve using Right Riemann? 4 partitions

7
**Right Riemann- Example**

For each method we must know: f(x)- the function of the curve n- the number of partitions or rectangles (a, b)- the boundaries on the x-axis between which we are finding the area

12
**Left Riemann- Overview**

Left Riemann uses the left corners of rectangles and places them along the curve to find the area. The equation that is used for the LEFT RIEMANN ALWAYS begins with: And ends with Within the brackets!

13
**Left Riemann- Example Remember: Left Only**

Given this problem below, what all do we need to know in order to find the area under the curve using Left Riemann? 4 partitions

14
**Left Riemann- Example For each method we must know:**

f(x)- the function of the curve n- the number of partitions or rectangles (a, b)- the boundaries on the x-axis between which we are finding the area

**Midpoint Riemann- Overview**

Midpoint Riemann uses the midpoint of the rectangles and places them along the curve to find the area. The equation that is used for MIDPOINT RIEMANN ALWAYS begins with: And ends with Within the brackets!

20
**Midpoint Riemann- Example**

Remember: Midpoint Only Given this problem below, what all do we need to know in order to find the area under the curve using Midpoint Riemann? 4 partitions

21
**Midpoint Riemann- Example**

For each method we must know: f(x)- the function of the curve n- the number of partitions or rectangles (a, b)- the boundaries on the x-axis between which we are finding the area

25
Correct??? n=6

26
**Trapezoidal Rule Overview**

Trapezoidal Rule is a little more accurate that Riemann Sums because it uses trapezoids instead of rectangles. You have to know the same 3 things as Riemann but the equation that is used for TRAPEZOIDAL RULE ALWAYS begins with: and ends with Within the brackets with every“ f ” being multiplied by 2 EXCEPT for the first and last terms

27
**Trapezoidal Rule- Example**

Remember: Trapezoidal Rule Only Given this problem below, what all do we need to know in order to find the area under the curve using Trapezoidal Rule? 4 partitions

28
**Trapezoidal Example For each method we must know:**

f(x)- the function of the curve n- the number of partitions or rectangles (a, b)- the boundaries on the x-axis between which we are finding the area

33
**Simpson’s Rule- Overview**

Simpson’s rule is the most accurate method of finding the area under a curve. It is better than the trapezoidal rule because instead of using straight lines to model the curve, it uses parabolic arches to approximate each part of the curve. The equation that is used for Simpson’s Rule ALWAYS begins with: And ends with Within the brackets with every “f” being multiplied by alternating coefficients of 4 and 2 EXCEPT the first and last terms. In Simpson’s Rule, n MUST be even.
