One way I like to introduce this is to forget about calculus for a moment and just work with areas. Ask the students to approximate the area of an irregular figure (lake, stream, etc.). I would let them play around with different methods and would try to lead them to give me an estimate of the boundaries of the areas (largest possible and smallest possible). In other words, try to get them to think about what it is they are doing. Hope this helps. Rick
