You are very familiar with taking the derivative of a function. Now we are going to go the other way around--if I give you a derivative of a function, can you come up with a possible original function. The symbol which we'll use to denote the anti-derivative will see strange at first, but it will all come together in a few tutorials when we see the connection between areas under curves, integrals and anti-derivatives.
