CONSIDERATIONS ABOUT APPLICATION OF GRAPHICAL CALCULUS
Keywords:graphical calculus, graphical differentiation, graphical integration, ray polygon method, tangent method, Simpson’s rule
Some typical engineering problems can be solved using graphical methods in an integrated way for knowledge of design, mathematics, mechanics and physics. This paper presents some graphical methods which improve student’s performances on streigth of intuitive interpretation, visualization and understanding solutions of engineering problems. The increased use of graphical methods adds another layer of interpretation to a given task requiring the coordination of different knowledge, in order to produce a correct solution and to improve the product design.
