Chap 6.1 Applications of integration: More about areas
Chapter 6.1 Examples 1, 2, 3 (pp.432-4)
Also look at Examples 4 and 5 (only examples with the pencil icon are likely to appear on the test).
Matlab exercise (not on test)
Explain (with sketches) you you find the area enclosed by the following curves:

x = linspace(.5,10)
y = log(x.^2);
y = 3./x;

Chapter 6.4 Applications of integration: Arc length
is only an approximation because the segments are not infinitesimally small
Why Wikipedia (though great) is not enough: w:Special:Permalink/744766508#Derivation documents an important derivation of w:Arc length that was added in 2006. First,it is not sufficiently complete for introductory students, and second, it was removed as can be seen in this 2017 version of the article: w:Special:Permalink/754122488

In the last step we replaced t by x. Now integrate WRT t or x. to get the desired result---26 January 2017
Infinitesimal is an interesting article, but not useful for this course.

Problems CERTAIN to be on Test II
On Monday and Wednesday, I will will spend some time on questions that will certainly be on the test--Guy vandegrift (discuss • contribs) Monday, 6 March 2017 (UTC)
Area between curves EXAMPLE 2 Section 6.1 p.433. I like this question because it emphasizes that an integral is a Reimann Sum, here of rectangles.
Using the washer method EXAMPLE 4 Section 6.2 p.442. Here, the integral is a Riemann sum of "little volumes", not "little rectangles".
NOT IN BOOK BUT ON TEST: Use the known circumference of the unit circle to generate an expression for a definite integral from x=0 to x=1. Do not solve the integral, but someone needs to verify that it is correct:
- where and
- (extra credit: explain why this is the formula for the arclength ).
