Lecture no. 19 from the course: Understanding Calculus: Problems, Solutions and Tips
Taught by Professor Bruce H. Edwards | 30 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Mathematics Courses
One of the classic problems of integral calculus is finding areas bounded by curves. This was solved for simple curves by the ancient Greeks. See how a more powerful method was later developed that produces a number called the definite integral, and learn the relevant notation.
