The math word "antiderivative" is referenced in the pages listed below.
This applet explores finding the antiderivative graphically, thinking of the integrand as representing the slope of the antiderivative in calculus. Interactive calculus applet.
Given that the general antiderivative of a derivative of a function is just the function plus a constant, We can evaluate integrals where the integrand is one of the derivatives that we already know. Interactive calculus applet.
Not all integrals have antiderivatives that can be written down using the basic functions and operations that we know. Some functions are, in fact, defined using an integral. This page shows two such functions in calculus. Interactive calculus applet.
While you are here..
... I have a small favor to ask. Over the years we have used advertising to support the site so it can remain free for everyone.
However, advertising revenue is falling and I have always hated the ads. So, would you go to Patreon and become a patron of the site?
When we reach the goal I will remove all advertising from the site.
It only takes a minute and any amount would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you for considering it! – John Page
