Q. Fundamental Theorem of Calculus (FTC) / Accumulation Function
b
What you are finding: Students should certainly know that the FTC says that " f ( x ) dx = F (b) # F ( a)
a
b
where F ( x ) is an antiderivative of f ( x ) . This leads to the fact that F ( a) +
" f ( x ) dx . Students should be
a
prepared to use substitution methods to integrate and be able to change
! the limits of integration using this
b
! substitution. Students should
! also know that
"
a
a
f ( x ) dx = # " f ( x ) dx .
!b
x
The accumulation function looks like this: F ( x ) =
" f (t ) dt . It represents the accumulated area under the
0
curve f starting at zero (or some value)
! and going out to the value of x. The variable t is a dummy variable. It
is important to believe that this is a function of x.

S. Interpretation of a Derivative as a Rate of Change
What you are finding: As mentioned in section I (Related Rates), a quantity that is given as a rate of change
needs to be interpreted as a derivative of some function. Typical problems ask for the value of the function at
a given time. These problems can be handled several ways:
a) solving a Differential Equation with initial condition (although DEQ’s may not have even been
formally mentioned yet)
b) Integral of the rate of change to give accumulated change. This uses the fact that:
b
b
# R"(t) dt = R(b) $ R(a) or R(b) = R(a) +
# R"(t) dt

U. Straight-Line Motion - Integrals
What you are finding: In section J, we looked at straight-line motion by the derivative process. You were
typically given a position function x ( t ) and took its derivative to find the velocity function v ( t ) and took the
velocity’s derivative to get the acceleration function a( t ) . Questions like finding maximum velocity or
minimum acceleration could then be answered.
!
!
Using integrals, we can work backwards. Typical questions involve knowing the velocity function, the
!
position of the particle at the start of the problem,
and integrating to find the position function.
How to find it: x ( t ) =
" v (t ) dt + C and v (t ) = " a(t ) dt + C . Using these equations is essentially solving
DEQ’s with an initial condition, usually the position at time t = 0 or velocity at t = 0. Two other concepts that
come into play are displacement and distance over some time interval [ t1,t 2 ] .
!
Displacement: the difference in position over [ t1,t 2 ] : x ( t 2 ) " x ( t1 ) =
t2
# v (t ) dt . Displacement can be
t1
positive, negative or zero.
!
t2
Distance: how far the particle traveled over [ t1,t 2 ] :
!
" v (t ) dt . Distance is always positive.

V. Area/Volume Problems
What you are finding: Typically, these are problems with which students feel more comfortable because
they are told exactly what to do or to find. Area and volume are lumped together because, almost always,
they are both tested within the confines of a single A.P. free response question. Usually, but not always, they
are on the calculator section of the free-response section.
Area problems usually involve finding the area of a region under a curve or the area between two curves
between two values of x. Volume problems usually involve finding the volume of a solid when rotating a
curve about a line.
How to find it: Area: Given two curves f ( x ) and g( x ) with f ( x ) " g( x ) on an interval [a, b], the area
x= b
between f and g on [a, b] is given by A =
# [ f ( x ) " g( x )] dx . While integration is usually done with respect
x= a
!
!
to the x-axis, these problems sometimes show up in terms of y: A =
y= d
# [m( y ) " n( y )] dy .
y= c
Volume: Disks and Washers:
! The method I recommend is to establish the outside Radius R, the distance
from the line of rotation to the outside curve, and, if it exists, the inside radius r, the distance from the line of
rotation to the inside curve. The formula when rotating these curves about a line on an interval is given by:

x= b

)
y= c
A favorite type of problem is creating a solid with the region R being the base of the solid. Cross sections
perpendicular to an axis are typically squares, equilateral triangles, right triangles, or semi-circles. Rather
than give formulas for this, it is suggested that you draw the figure, establish its area in terms of x or y, and

goal of solving a DEQ is to work backwards from the derivative to the function; that is to write an equation
in the form of y = f ( x ) + C (since the technique involves integration, the general solution will have a
constant of integration). If the value of the function at some value of x is known (an initial condition), the
!
value of C can be found. This is called a specific solution.
What you are finding: A differential equation (DEQ) is in the form of

those than that can be in the form of f ( y ) dy = g( x ) dx . Once in that form, both sides can be integrated with
the constant of integration on only one side, usually the right.
Word problems involving change with respect to time are usually models of DEQ’s. A favorite type is a
