Trapezoid Rule We have used a left and right Riemann sum to approximate an integral. Now we will introduce two more methods of approximation – the Trapezoid Rule and Simpson’s Rule. Trapezoid Rule: Instead of rectangles, we will use trapezoids to approximate the area.

The Trapezoid Approximation = LRS+RRS 2 Ex. Approximate sin e x 1 2 ± dx , n = 5 x f(x)

Ex. Approximate x ± dx 1 4 , n = 3 Simpson’s Rule: Use parabolas to estimate the area. For parabolas, we must use two intervals so n will always be even.
