Student Success Events

Tuesday, November 13

  • Time: 2:00 pm to 3:00 pm
  • Location: Marietta Campus, D208
  • Presenters: Bill Griffiths, Rebecca Shi, Jennifer Vandenbussche, Erik Westlund
  • Intended Audience: Current MATH 1190 Students
  • The Definite Integral, Area Under the Curve, and the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus
    • The students will be formed into small groups. Each group will be given a set of 'integral dominoes', which have a definite integral on half of the domino, and a number or shaded graph of an area under the curve on the bottom half. In their groups, the students will form the dominoes into a chain, matching the definite integrals with a corresponding solution, either numerical or graphical. The activity will be preceded and followed with Plickr questions to judge the utility of the exercise. As these activities will likely take 30-40 minutes, we will have the groups complete a supplemental worksheet on area accumulation of a piecewise function, as time allows.
