Antiderivatives and Slope Fields
Indefinite integration, or antidifferentiation, is the process of recovering a function from its derivative. In particular, recovering a position function from a velocity function is an important application example. A slope field is a powerful tool that takes advantage of the idea of local linearity to provide a graphical interpretation for antiderivatives. The unit also includes other lessons on the most important symbolic techniques of indefinite integration are the method of substitution and integration by parts.
