              Estimating the Area Under a Curve

              Students learn about estimating the area under a curve using the trapezium rule.  As learning progresses they interpret the area as displacement from a velocity-time graph.
              Differentiated Learning Objectives
              • All students should be able to use trapezia to estimate the area under a parabola within a given range.
              • Most students should be able to estimate the area under the curve of a non-linear function with a given range.
              • Some students should be able to interpret the area under the curve of a velocity-time graph as a measure of displacement.
