Finding The Area Under a Curve Using Rectangles
Here's an AP Calculus video that provides a discussion on determining an approximate for the area under a curve by calculating the sum of areas of rectangles that is smaller than the area and by finding the sum of areas of rectangles...

Exploring the Area Under a Curve
Using TI-89, mathematicians explore and investigate Riemann sums to estimate the area under the graphs of intervals by drawing and illustrating rectangles. They review and practice the concepts of summation notation and area formulas to...

Approximating Area Using Rectangles
Finding area using rectangles—isn't that a little too simplistic for a calculus course? Viewers learn how to approximate area under a curve using rectangles in the first installment of a seven-part video series on the definite integral....

Trapezoidal and Midpoint Approximations: Area of a Skirt
When are trapezoids better than rectangles? Using trapezoids pupils approximate the area of fabric defined by a function. Just like with rectangles, learners realize the more trapezoids the more accurate the approximation. Scholars use...
