Objectives (1a) To know what is meant by a Riemann sum. (1b) To understand the deFnition of the deFnite integral of a function as the limit of a Riemann sum. (1c) To understand how to interpret a deFnite integral of a function in terms of area when the function is not always positive. (1d) To be able to use the upper and lower sums to obtain an estimate of the error in evaluating a deFnite integral. (1e) To be able to Fnd the number of subintervals (sampling frequency) required to reduce the error to a given value in the case of monotonic functions. Preparatory Questions 1.
