An Introduction to Integration

Mike Melko, PhD (#111312)

This lecture will begin by defining the notion of anti-derivative and indefinite integral. Basic properties and the techniques of integration by parts and substitution will then be discussed. Examples, including the solution to simple differential equations that arise from motion in a constant gravitational field, will be given along the way. We will close with a discussion of area and the statement of the fundamental theorem of calculus. This lecture is ideal for first year calculus students who have learned the basics of differentiation.
