A bit of help needed

  1. Apr 20, 2006 #1
    Could someone please give me a basic idea on the following :

    a) Use of linear interpolation . the Newton Raphson method (a geometrical approach)

    b) numerical integration . the trapezium rule.

    I need to know just the basics for an exam so please be descriptive in your post.

    Thanks a lot

    Regards
    Sparsh

    There is plenty of litriture on the interent of these subjects beginning at explanations appropriate for GCSE studens (15 year olds) and more complex ones if required.

    I want to find something for the 15 year olds. The content on the wolfram site is a bit too complex for a first time understanding .
