Integration by parts module
After completing this section, students should be able to do the following.
- Describe the relationship between the product rule and integration by parts.
- Identify the functions required to transform the integral via integration by parts.
- Evaluate integrals using integration by parts, including multiple iterations.
- Use integration by parts to derive reduction formulas.
Integration by parts
We learn a new technique, called integration by parts, to help find antiderivatives of certain types of products by reexamining the product rule for differentiation.
