Learn how to evaluate definite integrals using The Fundamental Theorem of Calculus

The Fundamental Theorem of Calculus is a key result in Mathematics. It essentially links together the two branches of Calculus, differentiation and integration (anti-differentiation). In this video I show you how to evaluate definite integrals using the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus. If you’re already familiar with indefinite integrals, then evaluating definite integrals will be straight-forward as it just adds an extra step. If you’re taking a course in integral Calculus it’s essential that you get confident with evaluating definite integrals as the process is used in a range of techniques and applications.

Key Points

Definite integrals give a numerical solution not another function

The numerical solution can be positive or negative

Definite integrals are evaluated using anti-derivatives and The Fundamental Theorem of Calculus

The anti-derivative technique used will depend on the type of function being integrated
