  2. 2. Objective: to understand Simpson’s Rule Thomas Simpson (1710 – 1761)
  3. 3. Simpson’s Rule Simpson’s Rule was actually invented by Sir Isaac Newton but Thomas Simpson published it again in 1743.

To use Simpson’s Rule, you must have an even number of intervals (or an odd number of ordinates).
  4. 4. Example 1 Use Simpson’s Rule with five ordinates to find the approximate value of 3.24 (3 s.f.)
  5. 5. Example 2 Use Simpson’s Rule with four intervals to find the approximate value of 2.87 (3 s.f.)
