    In AQA FP1 there are four numerical integration methods:

    Newton-Raphson, Linear Interpolation, Interval Bisection or Eulers Method.

    This is Euler's Method, the formula for which you can find on page 9 of your formula booklet

    Just to clarify, Euler's method is used for solving first order differential equations. It is not a method of integration. Since this is a differential equation, you will want to use Euler's method.

    Newton-Raphson, linear interpolation, and interval bisection are used for finding roots of equations.

    Numerical integration methods include: trapezium rule, Simpson's rule.
