how would a user intuitively know the name of one numerical integration

I suggest to start reading the manual, as it is very helpful
chapter 23

Alright, guess it's time to get to work now.

About work, I hate any time MS modify the
Excel/Word/PowerPoint interfaces;
every 3 years I need to re-learn where the menu items
where moved. And the help is not very good to find them....

Any visual interface has some un-explained conventions;
until I read the manual I had no clue that double-clik
the only button has a specific usage on IPhone.
Everything is easy for the people that already know.
