# Areas between curves module

## Overview

After completing this section, students should be able to do the following.

- Apply the procedure of “Slice, Approximate, Integrate” to derive a formula for the area bounded by given curves.
- Understand the difference between net and total area.
- Find the area bounded by several curves.
- Set up an integral or sum of integrals with respect to xx that gives the area bounded by several curves.
- Set up an integral or sum of integrals with respect to yy that gives the area bounded by several curves.
- Decide whether to integrate with respect to xx or yy.

# Area between curves

## Ximera Module

We introduce the procedure of ``Slice, Approximate, Integrate" and use it study the area of a region between two curves using the definite integral.
