i'm trying to get a geometric understanding of the fundamental theorem: [tex]\int_a{}^{b}f'(x)dx=f(b)-f(a)[/tex] basically, isn't the above just saying that if we add up a lot of slopes on a line at every point we will get the difference of the y values?

thanks! feel free to add more or correct me
