‘integrating the area of each slice’
Determine the type of cross section
(triangle, semicircle, square, etc.)
and its relationship to the given
function or set of functions
Create an expression for the area of
each slice in terms of the function to
be used as the integrand
Set up and evaluate integrals to find
volume
Sketch a slope field given a
derivative in terms of x, y or both
Visualize the position functions that
differ by a constant (change in
vertical shift)
Understand the process behind
finding a solution to a differential
equation given an initial condition;
i.e. separating the variable, taking
the antiderivative, etc. NJ CCCS Strands &
