Discovering and Experiencing the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus.
Primus, v2 n2 p131-54 Jun 1992
Offers calculus students and teachers the opportunity to motivate and discover the first Fundamental Theorem of Calculus (FTC) in an experimental, experiential, inductive, intuitive, vernacular-based manner. Starting from the observation that a distance traveled at a constant speed corresponds to the area inside a rectangle, the FTC is discovered, validated, and generalized. (Author/MDH)
