 middlesum
 numerical approximation to an integral

 Calling Sequence middlesum(f(x), x=a..b) middlesum(f(x), x=a..b, n)

Parameters

 f(x) - algebraic expression in x x - variable of integration a - lower bound for the range of integration b - upper bound for the range of integration n - (optional) indicates the number of rectangles to use

Description

 • Important: The student package has been deprecated. Use the superseding command Student[Calculus1][RiemannSum] instead.
 • The function middlesum computes a numerical approximation to a definite integral using rectangles. The height of each rectangle (box) is determined by the value of the function at the midpoint of each interval.
 • Four equal-sized intervals are used by default.
 • The command with(student,middlesum) allows the use of the abbreviated form of this command.
