### Blogging on Blogging on Integrals

When you look at an Integral (signed area between the curve and the x axis), You then have to look at the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus. If you find the Integral of the derivative function over a specific interval [a, b], then you have found the change in position or Total Change in the parent function.

I find that referring to this helps when solving problems with Integrals. This Integral stuff is fairly easy for the most part, as long as you the difference between Left Hand Side and Right Hand Side. The only confusing part of this unit was learning to use the "big S" with f(x) and dx and remembering to subtract f (a) from f (b).

This was the easiest unit we will probably have to do in calculus.
This is my blog for the Integral unit.
