Creating a Computer Program to make Definite Integrals Easier to Understand

by Anthony Schryer


Submitted : Fall 2010


The idea of this project was to create a computer program that would make definite integrals easier to understand.  To do this, I had to find a standard equation for a definite integral. After a bit of research, I decided to use Simpson’s rule, which provided an easy to understand method for finding the definite integral of a function. I then added a challenge element to make the program entertaining. The end result was a prototype for a game that has users select an integral that fits the question criteria.
