Exploring how graphing technology deepens students’ understanding of integration

Raluca Sandu

15:00-16:00, Friday 1 July

Session description

Graphing technology can bring many A-level Maths topics alive. Delegates will have the opportunity to explore numerical and geometrical interpretations of integration, as well as different learning approaches for understanding definite integration, area and the complication of area below the x-axis or between functions.

The session will appeal to teachers whose students mainly use a scientific calculator and would like to consider using graphing technology, and to those who wish to extend their skills in representing integration graphically.

Interests: A level Mathematics / Further Mathematics
