Fundamental theorem of calculus exploration
1. For the function above on the interval [1,5], select n=4. (a) Is the left or right sum an upper bound for ? (b) For these Riemann sums, what is a bound on the integral? (c) Compute the Riemann sum for this case instead using the midpoint of the interval as in our text.
2. Use the same function and interval as in question #1. (a) As you slide the values of n to be larger, what is true about the left and right Riemann sums? (b) When you slide n to its largest value, how accurately can you determine the definite integral? Be specific.
3. Use the fundamental theorem of calculus to explicitly solve Show all your steps.
