I was doing an assignment for a class in which I have to do an animation of the Riemann sum and how the area changes as the rectangles divide. So far I have the following but there is a problem with the graphs, as stated in the title I cant get the rectangles to show inside the graph.

    $\begingroup$ You need to put the Show inside the Animate. Also it's good practice to post code not pictures. Use the formatting buttons inside the "Ask a Question" pane. $\endgroup$

1 Answer 1

f[x_] := x^2;

a = -3;
b = 6;

m[n_] := (b - a)/n;

R[r_] := Table[
    {Opacity[0.2], FaceForm[Black], 
      Rectangle[{a + (m[r]*(i - 1)), 0}, {a + (m[r]*(i)), f[a + (m[r]*(i))]}]}
    , {i, r}

 Show[{Plot[f[x], {x, -3, 6}], Graphics[R[c]]}, PlotRange -> All]
 , {c, 1, 100}, AnimationRunning -> False]
