STEM Lessons for College Students

Basic Integration Rules & Problems, Riemann Sum, Area, Sigma Notation, Fundamental Theorem, Calculus

This calculus video tutorial provides examples of basic integration rules with plenty of practice problems. It explains how to find the definite and indefinite integral of polynomial functions, exponenial functions, rational functions, trigonometric functions, and square root / radical functions. It also helps you to find the value of the definite integral / area under the curve using riemann sum – left and right endpoints along with the midpoint rule, trapezoidal rule, and the simpson’s rule. In addition, it explains how to calculate the integral using the limit definition with sigma notation / summation. Finally, this video discusses the fundamental theorem of calculus – part 1 and part 2.
