Fun with Integrals

Sometimes integrals are hard to understand for children, especially if they don’t completely understand the practicality of them. I believe that using funny comics to explain some properties of integrals are an interesting and funny way to do it. Here are a couple of interesting comics/drawings:

  1. Understanding the connection between integration and differentiation. Understanding this connection is similar to understanding “squaring” and doing the “square root”, or “exponential” and “logarithm”. The second image represents this better, while the first one represents the differences between integrating and differentiating the same function.

2. The connections and differences between proper and improper integrals:

Hope you liked this small post. Thank you for your help and support. You can find me on Facebook,  Tumblr,  Google+,  Twitter,Instagram and Lettrs, I will try to post there as often as possible. Don’t forget that maths is everywhere! Enjoy!
