Area under a curve

The area under a curve can be found by using one of two methods.

Method 1: Approximating using a numerical method such as dividing the area into shapes and calculating their areas (the Trapezium Rule and Simpson's Rule use such a technique).

Method 2: Integration (also known as Integral Calculus).
