MAD 4401 Quiz 2 To approximate the integral of a function over an interval we will use some points on its graph of the function, fit a polynomial through those points, and then integrate the polynomial over the interval. This will serve as an approximation of the integral of the original function. 1. Suppose that f ( x ) is a function on [0,1]. Use the points 0, 1 2 ,1 { } to approximate the integral f ( x ) dx 0 1
