Average Function Value ( § s 5.1 & 5.3 revisited) Suppose we want to find the average temperature over a 24-hour period. We will take n measurements so Average temperature = We know the more measurements we take the better the approximation. Rewrite this expression as a Riemann sum over 0 t 24. t n Average temperature =
