excellent introduction tool for integral calculus area calculation
via a graphical representation of the sum of strips between a function
and the x-axis.
Useful for both whole class display, or individual use, this fully
flexible program supports students' first definite integral calculations.
Through the clarity of the graphical representation, students become
aware of the dynamics and the theory of evaluating integrals.
> The graph
can be plotted of any function that can normally be graphed on the

> The window ranges are automatically calculated to provide clarity
of graphical representation.
> The number of strips required can be entered.
> Choice of strip length from minimum function value, maximum
function value, always left value, always right value, midpoint
value or trapezium construction.
> After graphing, the user can return to change any of the selected
options and re-graph.
