Use the Tutorial 1 1/2 ordinates for this assignment.

The idea would be to calculate the area using the FitPoly command (try 2nd degree curve fitting) of GeoGebra and getting an approximate function for these points. Then calculate the area between Station 0 & Station 10. Finally, compare the results between the outcomes of the Tutorial 1 (which is based on traditional Simpson's 1st Rule) and Tutorial 2 (which is based on curve-fitting tool of GeoGebra.
