Description: 
In this activity, students will look at the graph of a function g(x), defined to be the integral of a function f(x), with the goal of understanding Part 1 of the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus. Specifically, students will see that g(x) is related to the area under the graph of f(x) from a to x. They will also notice that the graph of g(x) is the antiderivative of f(x), thereby providing graphical support for Part 1 of the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus.
