So, you’re at the exam, you’ve been staring at the question for 10 minutes, and the clock is ticking...

How do you know which integration technique to use for a particular question?



If you're enrolled in a calculus II class, you've probably encountered the following techniques:

 Basic Substitution Method

 Integration by Parts

 Powers of Trigonometric Functions

 Trigonometric Substitution

 Partial Fractions

In this blog, we'll explore each of these techniques in greater detail, and consider some examples where the technique applies.

To start, nearly every integrand you come across can be simplified to look like one of these forms:


Most teachers will be kind enough to provide these formulas on a test, either in the form of a derivative or an integ [ ... ]

College panel recommends placing less importance on SAT and ACT scores

Some people enjoy standardized tests. The lack of open-ended responses. The comfort that there is only one correct answer. The cute little corresponding bubbles.

I'm not one of those people. Give me an essay, or even a fill-in-the-blank test, and I'm as cool as a cucumber. But give me a multiple-choice, standardized test and I'm as rotten as a mushroom (no offense to the fungus lovers, but I'm not one of those people, either.)

Luckily for people like me, a shift away from standardized tests has already begun, at least in the realm of some college admissions offices. In fact, colleges are now placing less emphasis on standardized testing and more emphasis on high school achi [ ... ]

Taking a physics exam without first practicing problem solving is like pinch-hitting in a crucial game without having taken batting practice.

Preparing for an exam in physics has two parts. You must make sure that you know how to work problems given a list of formulae, and you must ensure that you can reproduce the formulae. These tasks are rather separate.

The first step in ensuring that you can work problems is to keep up with the assignments as they are due. There is simply too much to learn to postpone this work to the last minute. As you go along you should make sure that you have mastered each type of problem. You should review assigned problems that you got wrong and get help with those where you do not understand what you did wrong. Y [ ... ]

Once you begin a test, follow these 10 steps to better test-taking.

You need to have a game plan to take a math test. This plan is different from plans for taking history, English, humanities, and some science tests. Once you begin a test, follow these 10 steps to better test-taking. The game plan is to get the most points in the least amount of time. Many students lose test points because they use the wrong test-taking strategies for math. By following these ten steps, you can demonstrate more knowledge on the test and get more questions right.

Step 1

Use a memory data dump. Upon receiving your test, turn it over and write down the information that you put on your mental cheat sheet. Your mental cheat sheet has now turned into a mental list a [ ... ]

Tuition and textbook prices are still rising, but there are tactics out there to keep the educational bill low.

In today's less-than-ideal economy, college students aren't likely the immediate sufferers of crumbling stock, but the trickle-down effect is surely tightening your budgets.

You won't catch a break with tuition – as state budgets get tighter, public universities will receive less funding which leaves them little choice in the matter. Textbook companies won't find the answer in slashing prices, either.

What will be sacrificed in the educational space are supplemental resources such as one-on-one tutoring, private test-prep courses and classroom materials like solutions manuals.

For the cash-strapped student (aren't we all?) cost-effect [ ... ]
