# MA.912.C.4.1

Interpret a definite integral as a limit of Riemann sums. Calculate the values of Riemann sums over equal subdivisions using left, right and midpoint evaluation points.

### Examples

Example: Find the values of the Riemann sums over the interval [0,1] using 12 and 24 subintervals of equal width for f(x)=ex evaluated at the midpoint of each subinterval. Write an expression for the Riemann sums using n intervals of equal width. Find the limit of this Riemann Sums as n goes to infinity.

Example: Estimate sin x dx using a Riemann midpoint sum with 4 subintervals.

Example: Find an approximate value for  using 6 rectangles of equal width under the graph of f(x)=x2 between x=0 and x=3. How did you form your rectangles? Compute this approximation three times using at least three different methods to form the rectangles.
