In this extensive 28-lesson series, we'll work on techniques of integration. We'll first cover the usage of integration tables and u-substitution. Then, we'll move on to integration techniques and identities to use when approaching integration problems that contain trigonometric functions (in combination with each other, raised to a power, or raised to various powers and combined). After this, we'll move on to several lessons on partial fraction decomposition, integration by parts, trigonometric substitution and numerical integration with the trapezoidal rule.

Taught by Professor Edward Burger, this series comes from a comprehensive Calculus course. This course and others are available from Thinkwell, Inc. The full course can be found at The full course covers limits, derivatives, implicit differentiation, integration or antidifferentiation, L'Hopital's Rule, functions and their inverses, improper integrals, integral calculus, differential calculus, sequences, series, differential equations, parametric equations, polar coordinates, vector calculus and a variety of other AP Calculus, College Calculus and Calculus II topics.

Saved my calculus life!
~ Thomas45

my test score went up a WHOPPING 40 points once i started watching Professor burgers videos! i do have one thing i did not get out of this and it is how to change the limits of the integral to radians in the very beginning...

~ dianna2

I am an AP Calculus student and I was having the hardest time learning u substitution. Because of this video, I learned the same thing in 10 minutes that my teacher would have tried (unsuccessfully) to teach me for 45 minutes. :)

~ joel8

I cant stop watching!!!

Awesome examples!
~ brittanie

Great use of examples to explain how to find the derivative of a trig function. I hate taking the derivative of sec(x) and really appreciate this video for helping me learn how to live with it. :)
