    Historically, though, integration came together as 1) finding area under a curve and 2) determining the anti-derivative...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)).

    lol, 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.
