    Core 3 Simpsons Rule Core 3 Simpsons Rule Presentation Transcript

    • Starter Use the Trapezium Rule with four intervals to estimate the value of Have you overestimated or underestimated the true area? 3.28 (3 s.f.)
    • Objective: to understand Simpson’s Rule Thomas Simpson (1710 – 1761)
    • Simpson’s Rule Simpson’s Rule was actually invented by Sir Isaac Newton but Thomas Simpson published it again in 1743. It is more accurate than the Trapezium Rule because it fits a number of parabolas to the curve rather than straight lines. To use Simpson’s Rule, you must have an even number of intervals (or an odd number of ordinates).
    • Example 1 Use Simpson’s Rule with five ordinates to find the approximate value of 3.24 (3 s.f.)
    • Example 2 Use Simpson’s Rule with four intervals to find the approximate value of 2.87 (3 s.f.)
