Please report any inappropriate comments.The easiest example is finding the area under a curve. You could always do it by calculus, or by approximation, drawing a series of thin rectangles under the curve and adding up the area. With a modern computer, that latter is very, very easy.

See if it matches the theory.

I think you're missing the point of numerical applications on the computer.

It was a good article, though. And shows how the ideas of calculus relate well to looking at functions. Like the derivative of pythagorean record showing why 10 runs is equal to a win. I should probably think about what I say more carefully.

Why set yourself apart from the crowd?

Not even wrong. Just missing the whole point of numerical computing.
