# Ch 32: NES Math: Applications of Integration

### About This Chapter

## NES Math: Applications of Integration - Chapter Summary

Brush up on integrals and the ways in which they are used by watching our short video lessons. The material in this chapter of our study guide can help you handle NES Math test questions on topics such as:

- Dynamic motion and integration
- The use of single integrals to calculate volumes
- How to use integration to find volumes of revolution

Our instructors have developed entertaining lessons that make their points with examples and humor. You can test your knowledge with short quizzes and a chapter exam. A clickable Timeline lets you quickly jump back to the lesson to review key passages without having to re-watch the entire video. You can keep up with your progress through our personalized Dashboard, which may even offer some suggestions about other courses that could help you.

### NES Math: Applications of Integration Chapter Objectives

Several states require passing the NES Math test as a condition for certification to teach math at the secondary level. The test consists entirely of multiple-choice questions and is administered by computer. Our lesson quizzes and chapter exam also are computer-based multiple-choice tests, so taking them will give you practice in answering questions like those you'll face on the NES test in addition to helping you gauge your learning.

The NES Math test is divided into five sections, called content domains. Questions related to the applications of integration will be asked during the exam's Trigonometry and Calculus content domain, which makes up 19% of the test's score.

### 1. Integration and Dynamic Motion

This lesson uses driving to demonstrate how graphing can help you use calculus to figure out how fast you were going at a given time. Using this lesson, you can learn how to integrate your velocity to find your position.

### 2. How to Calculate Volumes Using Single Integrals

Ever wonder where the equation for the volume of a cone comes from? Or the equation for the volume of a sphere? In this lesson, learn how to use a slicing technique to find the volume of a region by solving a single integral.

### 3. How to Find Volumes of Revolution With Integration

Some shapes look the same as you rotate them, like the body of a football. In this lesson, learn how to find the volumes of shapes that have symmetry around an axis using the volume of revolution integration technique.
