Simpsons 1/3 Rule
The trapezoidal rule was based on approximating the integrand by a first order polynomial, and then integrating the
polynomial over interval of integration. Simpsons 1/3 rule is an extension of Trapezoidal rule where the integrand is
approximated by a second order polynomial.

Since the above form has 1/3 in its formula, it is called Simpsons 1/3 rule.

Just like in multiple-segment trapezoidal rule, one can subdivide the interval | | b a, into n segments and apply
Simpsons 1/3 rule repeatedly over every two segments. Note that n needs to be even. Divide interval | | b a, into n
equal segments, so that the segment width is given by

The main objective of this chapter is to develop appropriate formulas for approximating the integral of the form

function ) (x f by a simpler function (usually a polynomial function) ) (x f

polynomial function. In Chapter 07.03, Simpsons 1/3 rule for integration was derived by approximating the integrand
