## The Fundamental Theorem of Calculus

## Videos

This video from *Khan Academy* explains how the first part of the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus connects integration and differentiation, then shows how it can be used to compute the derivative of complex definite integrals.

This video from *Firefly Lectures* shows how to use the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus to compute derivatives of complex integral expressions. Note: What is referred to in this video as the Second Fundamental Theorem of Calculus is generally known in Ireland as the First (Part of the) Fundamental Theorem of Calculus.
