This video on "Area under a Curve" teaches the viewer how to interpret and compute integrals, both graphically and mathematically. It explains the concept of the area between two curves, and how to relate it to the algebraic representation as a definite integral. The transcript provides step-by-step instructions on how to solve a few different examples of integration problems using the calculator's integration features.
Be able to interpret what the integral or area below a given business function (e.g. marginal cost) represents (e.g. total cost). Be able to compute that integral (area) given the function and limits. Be able to relate the area between two curves (functions) on a Cartesian graph to the algebraic representation as a definite integral of a difference of those two functions.
