ArizMATYC Fall, 2018 Making Sense of Integration Visually

Making Sense of Integration Visually: Mapping Diagrams for Calculus Fall 2018 ArizMATYC Conference (Phoenix, AZ) Friday October 5, 2018 Martin Flashman Professor Emeritus of Mathematics Humboldt State University Links: http://flashman.neocities.org/Presentations/ArizMATYC.LINKS.html Abstract: Understanding and evaluating integrals are important challenges of the calculus. Mapping diagrams, frequently coupled with tables, are a valuable alternative to graphs for visualizing functions and integration. Professor Flashman will start with the basics of mapping diagrams to visualize linear functions, the differential, and Euler’s numerical method for solving differential equations, followed by a tour using GeoGebra through visualizations of integration theory and practice, concluding with visualizations to make sense of the Fundamental Theorems of Calculus.
