Hands-on: Numerical integration

We continue studying vectorized operations with numerical integration.

A simple method for evaluating integrals numerically is by the middle Riemann sum


Calculate the integral in the interval [0,π/2] and investigate how much the Riemann sum of sin differs from 1.0. Avoid for loops. Investigate also how the results changes with the choice of Δx.
