Overview

Some integrals are so complicated or time-consuming to integrate algebraically that we resort to simply looking-up their answer in a table of known integrals or evaluating electronically. In this lesson we practice using an integral table to evaluate integrals. Reference books such as the CRC Standard Mathematical Tables and Formulae contain literally thousands of integrals that some kind mathematician has evaluated for us so that we can simply apply the formula to find the answer.

Supplemental Resources (recommended)

In case you don’t have a CRC on your bookshelf, I recommend that you download/print an integral table from integral-table.com: [Download Full INTEGRAL TABLE or Compressed Two-Page Version] Both versions contain over 100 of the most common integrals needed in a Calculus I-II-II course. As optional alternatives:
