This resource is part of a collection of Nuffield Maths resources exploring Calculus. The demand is roughly equivalent to that in GCE A level.
In this resource students learn how to find the mean values of quantities varying with time. This involves finding the area under graphs, initially by using geometrical formulae for areas. It is followed by the use of integration in a variety of real life situations.
