Visualizing Riemann Sums and Definite Integrals With TI Technology

Technology: TI-84 Plus family, TI-Nspire™ Technology
Topic: Content Knowledge
Speakers: Corey Boby, Tracy Watson

Integrals and the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus is one of the four “Big Ideas” in the revised AP* Calculus course description. A common method for introducing integrals is through Riemann sums.

In this session, T³™ National Instructors who also serve as AP* Calculus Readers will share teaching strategies for helping students visualize Riemann sums using the TI-84 Plus family of graphing calculators and TI-Nspire™ technology. This session will address:

  • Riemann sums methods and TI technology
  • Calculating definite integrals
  • An introduction to the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus
