Week 16/17
Term 2 Learning Brief Integrals
Area and Volume

By the end of this fortnight, you should be able to:

Goals • understand and use definite integrals to find the further areas, area between
curves and the x axis and the y axis
• rotate simple areas around the x-axis and the y-axis to find the volumes of solids of
• understand the methods of finding volumes of solids of revolution
• develop the skills of drawing and labelling diagrams
• find the volume of revolution about the x-axis for the function f(x) from x = a to x = b
• find the volume of revolution about the y-axis for the function f(y) from y = a to y = b
• find the volume of revolution about the x-axis for the region between f(x) and g(x)
where f(x) ≥ g(x) from x = a to x = b

Read the worked examples in the text – remember
that the Area under the curve/Volume formulae
Exercise 6F
change if you are looking at the area between the x-
axis or y-axis
Exercise 6G


Complete tasks:
Videos see last week’s brief for links (Try to watch • Applications of Integration (Log Functions)
them all over the next two weeks – copy the • Further Applications of Integration
examples into your notes)

Summary – see end of Chapter 6 for useful

integration formulae

Chapter review…useful for revision – hint!

Investigation for Week 16 – see the following
