Area Under a Curve Teacher Resources
There’s no limit to what your calculus class can accomplish when you’re working with Lesson Planet!
Our teacher team has curated a variety of ways to teach calculus students how to calculate the area under a curve. A video connects the concepts of area and slope in a straightforward way, and an AP Calculus video uses four rectangles to demonstrate the concept. Learners can also take their knowledge online with an interactive resource that uses left-hand sums.
Apply integration and area in practical ways with a lesson that follows a curvy road to calculate the area under a curve, or a velocity activity that connects physics, calculus, and robots. Finish up your unit with an assessment that prompts class members to calculate a data set with normal distribution in two different ways.
