This RISP activity, The answer's 1: what's the question? gives students graphs containing shaded areas enclosed by two functions. Examples of a straight line and a quadratic graph, a cubic graph and an exponential graph are used. Given that the enclosed area has a value of one, students are asked to find the functions. The RISP can also be used to consolidate work on the Trapezium Rule, and to investigate Volumes of Revolution.
