Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Historically, though, integration came together as 1) finding area under a curve and 2) determining the antiderivative...it was discovered later that the may describe the same thing (I say 'may' because you can have negative integrals and area is not negative (typically)).

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0lol, there's actually a difference. My professor described the integration as the "Good guy" and the derivative as the "Bad Guy." Why? because whenever you integrate = end up having an endless function, and whenever you derive = function disappears in the end; it eats it all up.
