Subtopic: Antiderivatives & Indefinite Integrals

Overview

Differentiating takes a function to its derivative. Antidifferentiating reverses this process taking a derivative back to its original function. The result is an antiderivative. The process of finding an antiderivative is called integrating. As differentiating is the major focus of Calculus I, integrating is the major focus of Calculus II.
