Summing it Up-ID: 10094
Young scholars explore the area under a curve. In this calculus lesson plan, students investigate Riemann sums as they employ technology to discover that if enough Riemann sums are used. Young scholars then determine whether the area under a curve can be calculated with the required degree of precision.

Approximating Integrals with Riemann Sums
Students practice calculating and analyzing Riemann sums and illustrate when Riemann sums will over/under-approximate a definite integral. They view how the convergence of Riemann sums as the number of subintervals get larger.
