Students explore the integral of a periodic function both numerically and graphically in order to gain an understanding of area accumulation.
Students will numerically and graphically explore the integral using area accumulation.
Students will use the handheld to explore what happens to the integral of sin(x)dx for a fixed value of a. Students will make observations about the integral for x < a, a = x, and a < x.
In an extension to the activity, students will explore the kinematic relationship between the acceleration and the velocity of a moving object.
