Areas Under the Curve and Desmos

I just can’t quite get enough Desmos. Previously software always let me down. It regularly wouldn’t do things I wanted it to do. Desmos on the other hand doesn’t let me down, and it keeps improving.

I made this visual for students to understand how approximating the area under a curve works and allows them to play around with the numbers. Enjoy!
