Lesson Plan: Work and Integration Mathematics
This lesson plan includes the objectives, prerequisites, and exclusions of the lesson teaching students how to use integration to find the work done by a variable force.
Students will be able to
- use integration to find the work done by a variable force acting on a body over a given displacement.
Students should already be familiar with
- variable forces,
- work as the product of force and displacement.
Students will not cover
- integration by parts,
- variable mass problems.
